Created by Master Blender Allen Smith, the small-batch release of tasting rums tells the story of two unique methods of distillation, Copper Pot and Copper Column. The pairing rums are identical in ingredients, fermentation and maturity, but differentiated by one thing - distillation. One rum is 100% distilled in a copper pot still and the other is 100% distilled in a copper column still.
While the Mount Gay flavor profile is typically achieved through the blending of both distillation styles, Volume Two was crafted to give consumers a deeper understanding of the subtleties imparted by each still to allow them to become a more informed rum drinker. Rum aficionados and aged spirit connoisseurs can explore the different aromas and taste of the two rums side by side the Mount Gay way, neat or with a single ice cube.
Like Volume One of the Origin Series – which featured Virgin Cask and Charred Cask varieties – Volume Two will be presented in bespoke packaging with a detailed booklet that gives an overview of the creation of the two rums.

Copper Pot RumBorn from the most traditional distillation technique, our Copper Pot Rum is acquainted twice with its namesake still. Long rested in oak barrel, it is a rum only arriving at maturity, maintaining a touch of untamed character and presents the nose with a vinous, complex interpretation of the robust Mount Gay aromatic character. Complex, interwoven notes of chocolate, coconut, and almonds linger for a sustained finish.
Copper Column RumSmooth and balanced, our Copper Column Rum is a mellow and delicate expression of the classic Mount Gay aromas of banana and almond. Crafted in our copper column still, this rum is settling into maturity after aging in toasted oak casks. Light-bodied and warm on the palate, with a character that strikes between sweet and bitter, its short, crisp finish is highlighted by floral and sweet fruit notes.
“Every great story begins with a time and a place. For Mount Gay, that time and place is the Caribbean Island of Barbados, where we've been making rum since 1703.”
The distinct bold character of Mount Gay Rum has been developed in traditional double copper pot stills. An innovative distillation technique in 1703, this process has been in continuous use by Mount Gay ever since.
