TERROIR: Mount Gay is crafting its rum in Barbados, the birthplace of rum. Barbados has a large influence in the making process: as the only coral based island in the Caribbean, the island offers some of the purest water in the world. It also grow the finest sugarcane. As one of southernmost island from the Caribbean, Barbados offers natural yeast that, combined with coral-filtered maximizes flavour during fermentation. Finally, Barbados tropical climate accelerates the concentration of aromas and flavors during the aging in casks (and also evaporation with angel share).
EXPERTISE: The combination of each step of our process which delivers unique, rich, flavorful rums is what makes Mount Gay unique. The distinctive character of Mount Gay comes from using rums distilled both in traditional column and copper pot stills. Mount Gay age every batch of rum separately in a diverse range of casks including American Whiskey, bourbon and cognac barrels. The final touch is brought by our Master Blender Trudiann Branker who is carefully selecting the right combination of barrels to recreate the unique Mount Gay signature style.
