Every great story begins with a time and a place.
A legal deed dated from 20th of February 1703 confirms the existence of a “pot still house” on our sugar cane Estate in Barbados, establishing us as the World’s oldest rum producer. Our distillery name honours the pioneering Sir John Gay who perfected the distinctive Mount Gay style.
Still today, only the finest sugar cane molasses and pure water filtered through the coral heart of the island are selected to create Mount Gay rums.
Perpetuating a long-standing Barbadian tradition for more than 310 years, Mount Gay rums are handcrafted from a blend of single column and double copper pot distillates and matured in toasted oak barrels, delivering aromatic, flavourful taste, body and refined character.
This November brings Mount Gay’s Global Rum Ambassador Miguel Smith to our shores to launch Mount Gay’s latest creation – Black Barrel, into the New Zealand market.
We were lucky enough to have Miguel Smith mix us up a delicious cocktail - see the video below!
