Mount Gay Rum

Mount Gay Rum, the finest, oldest brand of rum in existence, has been produced on Barbados with passion and unparalleled excellence since 1703.

The year 1637 witnessed the birth of Barbadian rum distillation, heralded by the arrival of the first small scale distilleries to the island.

By mid-century planters had settled on what would become the Mount Gay plantation, putting stills to use as early as 1667. 1703 marked the appearance of the oldest written evidence of regular distillation on the site.

Over the last three hundred plus years, Mount Gay Rum, has become a veritable emblem of Barbados and its unique lifestyle. Expertly fashioned from the rich sugar cane and pristine coral-filtered water native to the island, Mount Gay Rum is a sumptuous, inimitable expression of the Barbadian art of living.

An untiring quest for excellence guides every step of Mount Gay Rum's fabrication process. Only the finest sugar cane, most aromatic molasses and the purest, coral-filtered water are used to receive the extended ageing and artful blending that are the pride and hallmark of Mount Gay.

However, the inimitable quality is achieved not only by the meticulous selection of the finest ingredients, but by the remarkable talent of the generations of master blenders and their passion for the art of blending; a unique craftsmanship conserved and respected since 1703.

Mount Gay Rum's current Master Blender Allen Smith, ensures that every bottle delivers the superlative appearance, aroma and taste for which Mount Gay has always been known.

Mount Gay Rum Eclipse Silver: The Taste of Purity

Eclipse Silver is the white rum counterpart to Eclipse Rum. An exquisite, light-bodied spirit of exceptional flavour and exceedingly smooth character. As infinitely pure as the crystalline water used in its making, Eclipse Silver is a tribute to the pure coral filtered water and sparkling sea of the island of Barbados.

Mount Gay Rum Eclipse: The Barbadian Emblem

In 1910, the twin phenomena of a total solar eclipse and the passage of Halley's comet inspired the creation of Eclipse, a rum whose surpassing depth and complexity epitomise the art of Barbadian rum making. Lavishly awarded and highly lauded, this noble blend of single and double distilled rums has enchanted generations of rum lovers the world over.

Mount Gay Rum Eclipse Black: A Powerhouse of Flavor

A selection of single distilled rums aged from 2 to 7 years old in charred oak barrels that impart toasted and woody notes and the addition of a higher proportion of double distilled rums in traditional pot stills, aged up to 7 years, that bring exceptional rum character. Released at 100 proof (50% Alc. Vol) in order to enhance the wonderful palette of aromas and the superb intensity of the blend.

Mount Gay Rum Extra Old: With Age Comes Perfection

From Mount Gay Rum's precious reserves comes Extra Old, an opulent blend of the finest aged spirits. Slowly matured in Kentucky oak, this artfully crafted rum is the fruit of a unique, centuries-old distillation process. The result is one of the most award-winning rums in the world, a spirit for the most demanding of connoisseurs.

Mount Gay Regatta

Mount Gay has always had a passion for regattas and has therefore become a reference in the sailing world.

Any passionate sailor, worthy of his name drinks Mount Gay Rum!

The name Mount Gay Rum is also synonymous with the Crop Over Festival, an annual cultural event that culminates in costumes, street dancing and calypso events across the island.

The historically based festival takes place at the end of the sugar harvest in July and August and climaxes with the Grand Kadooment Day on the first Monday in August.
