"This rum is an incredibly complex blend, bringing to life the complexity of St Lucy, Barbados and the Mount Gay Estate terroir."
An exciting addition to the Mount Gay collection, and the first in what will become an annual series from the Barbados distillery. Here we have its first Single Estate rum! Produced from sugar cane grown solely on the Mount Gay estate in Barbados, and grown intentionally to make molasses for rum production, rather than for producing sugar, the 2023 edition comprises a blend of the 2016 and 2017 cane harvests. Fermented with a yeast strain unique to Mount Gay, the rum matured between six and seven years, before being bottled up at a satisfying 55% ABV.
‘Due to long fermentation length we went into a secondary fermentation, which provided a really distinctive flavour, giving specific Barbadian notes that we don’t normally encounter in our rums, like pineapple or guava. You really get the fruitier side of the congeners appearing.’
