Come to the site where Mount Gay has distilled rum for over 360 years to discover how Barbados became the birthplace of rum and how Mount Gay’s focus on quality has made us the oldest, continuously running rum distillery in the world. With unparalleled access to our working estate, you will explore our lands, original well, molasses house, fermentation house, distillation house and bonds. Each step of this experience we hope will show you how we choose the best ingredients that nature has to give and transform them with expertise and time into exceptionally aromatic and complex rums.
