Mount Gay Rum Tasting Workshop
Join Miguel Smith, Brand Ambassador of Mount Gay Rum to learn about the history, craftsmanship and spirited stories of Mount Gay, the oldest rum and continually produced spirit in the world over three centuries.
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. The Mount Gay Rum portfolio includes the newly-launched Black Barrel, 1703 Old Cask Selection, Extra Old, and Silver.
