Mount Gay Rum
The Mount Gay Rum Estate has long been recognised for the quality of its premium rums, which continue to win major international awards. With legal deeds showing that production was well under way by 1703, this makes Mount Gay Rum not only the oldest rum in Barbados but, more importantly, the oldest rum in the world.
Mount Gay Distilleries’ unique craftsmanship can be attributed to five distinctive elements not shared by other producers: the best molasses, the purest coral water, a unique distillation process, ageing in Kentucky oak barrels and last, but not least, the skill of their Master-Blender. With its origins in Barbados and its long-standing association with major, internationally renowned sailing events and the Cricket World Cup, the brand has a strong following in the US as well as Australia and New Zealand and, increasingly, the UK.
