Barbados is the home country of the Mount Gay Rum 1703 Black Barrel. According to stories the Caribbean Rum was first enjoyed in Barbados and gradually paved the way to the neighboring islands. The house Mount Gay is one of the few remaining Rum distilleries in Barbados because many distilleries were forced to close on the island over time. Rumor has it that the Mount Gay Rum distillery is even the oldest in the world with over 300 year’s worth of knowledge and experience. At the beginning of 2012 the Mount Gay Rum 1703 Black Barrel successfully found its way from the United States to the European spirits market.
The distinctive and bold Mount Gay Rum 1703 Black Barrel is the product of simple distilled column still Rum and double-distilled pot still Rum, which are carefully prepared by the master blender Allen Smith. After the burning process the Mount Gay Rum 1703 Black Barrel is rested and matured in burnt-bourbon casks. The distillery focuses on maturing the Rum rather than ageing the Rum. Here the medium bodied Rum unfolds its perfect character and its unique taste. Overall, the blended small batch Rum consists of 44 different, continuously audited distillates. Blending is a true craft and takes skill and intuition. It is precisely this composition makes the hand crafted Mount Gay Rum 1703 Black Barrel so special and sets it apart from the other Caribbean products. The water used in the production is triple filtered even though the island of Barbados is made of porous limestone which acts as a natural filter anyway resulting in pure water.
The packaging of the molasses based Mount Gay Rum 1703 Black Barrel is quite unique. The tall long necked bottle has a closure made of cork with a wood top and the label looks like a stamp. Each bottle has its own unique code. An interesting addition to a Rum collection.
