From 1703 onwards, rum was distilled on Barbados, in the Caribbean. This new drink was named the “kill-devil”.
Sir John Gay was a respected businessman who worked for a greater Barbados. One of his friends, John Sober, inherited a distillery and sought advice from John Gay. The latter became manager of the distillery, refining the distillation process and starting to produce rum of better quality than others on the island.
Mount Gay Rum continued the 300 years of tradition and knowledge.
