Hailing from the Caribbean Island of Barbados, Mount Gay Rum was first produced back in 1703.
Sir John Gay was a respected leader and businessman who worked tirelessly in service of the island of Barbados. A friend of Sir John Gay’s, the contrarily named John Sober, inherited a then-unknown distillery and had asked for Sir John’s help in managing it. Sir John Gay took quickly to the business of making rum. He refined the distillation process and began producing a noticeably superior product that we know today as Mount Gay Rum.
Since it was first produced over 300 years go, Mount Gay Rum has been one of the most respected and recognised rums in the world. With their range including aged and old casks selections, there is a Mount Gay Rum for all rum lovers.
