The story of Mount Gay Rum begins in the year 1703, on the Caribbean island of Barbados, when John Sober (seriously...), inherited a distillery and invited Sir John Gay to help manage it.

Sir John Gay jumped at the opportunity to give the Barbadians something special. He refined the production process and began producing a noticeably superior product that has survived to this day.

Mount Gay is one of the oldest, if not the oldest, Rum brand in the World. The Mount Gay lineup features a core range of handcrafted Rums, including Mount Gay Silver, Eclipse, Black Barrel, Extra Gold, 1703 Meter Select.

What does Mount Gay taste like?

The Flavour Spiral™ shows the most common flavours that you'll taste in Mount Gay rum and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavour Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
