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 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.

Mount Gay 1703 celebrates the founding of the distillery. It's an excellent Rum crafted by master distiller, Allen Smith, and contains Rums that have been aged between 10 and 30 years. It's comprised of rare and noteworthy barrels that Allen has been carefully monitoring over the years.

In 1757, Sir John Gay Alleyne was elected to the Parliament of Barbados, a seat he held down for the next forty years. His contemporaries even considered giving him the title: The Most Important Man in Barbados.
It is often misunderstood that the little red star on the image of the island on Mount Gay Rum's original bottle represents the location of the distilleries, but in fact, it symbolizes the capital of Barbados, Bridgetown. The distilleries are actually in the northern part of the island.
The oldest surviving deed for the Mount Gay Distillery is from 1703, making Mount Gay Rum the world’s oldest commercial Rum distillery.
