Distilled in Barbados, Mount Gay has been making rum longer than any other rum distillery in the world and is proud to have 300 years of heritage, mastering our craft since 1703. Our heritage blend, Mount Gay Eclipse, this expression from Mount Gay was named for the double phenomenon of a total solar eclipse and the passage of Halleys comet in 1910 that was visible from Barbados. Its a blend of rums distilled in traditional copper pot and column stills, then matured for 2 years solely in American whiskey casks.
The Nose is full and rounded with notes of fresh flowers and honey, a little vanilla and tropical fruit. The palate is fruity and well-rounded with notes of banana, vanilla, smoke, toasty oak, spice. The Finish is long and spiced with toasty oak.
Ideal for any cocktail possibility, from easy mixed drinks and classic recipes
Back in 1703, the beautiful Caribbean Islands of Barbados bore the legend of the Mount Gay Rum. Their thirst for good alcohol led to the discovery of such a fine spirit. Sir John Gay was known to be a respected leader and businessman working towards the properity of the island. He assisted a friend who had inherited an unknown distillery and quickly learnt how to make rum. It was indeedm Sir John Gay who refined the process of distillation to produce a more refined and fine rum-Mount Gay. Mount Gay Rum is the result of 310 years of knowledge, experiment and refinement. Each flavour is made of natural ingredients from Barbados. Mount Gay Eclispse is defined by the character, body and aroma perfected by Master Blender Allen Smith. A brilliant golden amber, this rum posesses a luxuriously complex aroma of floral and fruits notes of apricot and banana, with hints of vanilla. STYLE: Rum, ALCOHOL BY VOLUME (ABV): 40%
