Tasting Seminar: Rums of Barbados — Mount Gay

My Fellow Rum Enthusiasts,

It's a great privilege and honor to bring you a very special tasting event in Miami that I know you'll enjoy, featuring some iconic rums of Barbados, produced by Mount Gay.

Synonymous with the earliest history of rum making in the Caribbean region, the Mount Gay lineage can trace its roots back to 1703, when Barbados gained a reputation for making the world's finest rum.

A prized possession for sailors venturing from Europe to the new world was a barrel marked "Barbados Rum." Rum from the Caribbean island colonies was all the rage in the European capitals at a time when sugar plantations made many families wealthy beyond description.

Among the fine rums we will sample and discuss:

  • Mount Gay Silver
  • Mount Gay Eclipse
  • Mount Gay Black Barrel
  • Mount Gay XO premium
  • Mount Gay 1703 ultra premium

We hope you can join us for this special event.
