A complex and balanced blend of well-aged Mount Gay Rums across the range of casks and stills.

Rum production is THE primary industry on the island of Barbados — the eastern-most island in the Caribbean. Mount Gay is not only the oldest Rum Distillery on the island, it is documented to be the oldest Rum Distillery in the world with land title papers stretching all the way back to 1703. Technically, the Distillery is independent, but Rémy Cointreau is a majority shareholder of the facility and controls the Mount Gay brand — and they do a very good job leaving them alone to create their brand of Caribbean magic.

Mount Gay XO has been around for a while… but then again it is brand new. The previous edition was a blend of Rums had a narrower range of agings. Brand new for 2020, Mount Gay XO Triple Cask Blend is a blend of Rums aged between five and seventeen years in a combination of cask types — ex-Bourbon, ex-Whiskey, and ex-Cognac. To add even more complexity, the stills are a combination of pot and column. And we really like the results. Tons of character, not too sweet, and with a great balance of spice and fruit notes.

Rum is why we measure alcohol proof. To make sure Rum wasn’t watered down, it had to be ‘proven’ by soaking gunpowder with it. If it was ‘overproof’ (higher than 57.15 % vol.), then the gunpowder would ignite, but if it wouldn’t, it was ‘underproof.’
You might find Rum masquerading itself under other nom de plumes, like Ron, Rom and Rhum.
Rum (usually) comes from molasses, the sweet and syrupy residue of refining sugarcane into sugar. Molasses is over 50% sugar, but it also contains significant amounts of minerals and other trace elements, contributing to the final flavor.
Common Rum classifications: White, Golden or Amber, Dark, Spiced, Añejo and Age-Dated Rums.
Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
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.
