Three Centuries of Heritage
It is more than rum, it’s a story and a heritage. Mount Gay Rum is the world’s oldest commercial rum distillery, as their oldest deed dates back to 1703. The “sailing rum” it is called as Mount Gay was a favourite for sailors worldwide. A legacy continues to brew.
The rum is created uniquely with double distillation. Intense aromatics and flavours are formed and married with a smooth texture and taste, making it one of the best in the Caribbean.
Mount Gay Rums have been honored with some of the most important awards internationally and was named “the best rum of the 21st century” by Robb Report’s rank, a leading voice in the global luxury market.
Mount Gay Rums many award-winning brands include:
Mount Gay Rum® is known as “The Rum That Invented Rum”, and it still continues to be one of the best rums in the world.
The distillery makes some of the best rum in the world. I visited, and I tasted, and I loved it, but you do not have to travel to the islands to experience the best of what Mount Gay has to offer.
The XO Reserve Cask is something I’ve always heard and read good things about, even before I took a deep dive into rum. I can now see why. Amazing. easy to drink, yet has good texture and complexity despite the 43% ABV. $55 for quality and unsweetened rum like this is a steal for me.
