Lista de produtos da marca Mount Gay
Mount Gay claims to be the oldest rum producer in the world, dating to 1703.
Rum, originally called “Kill-Devil” by the Barbadians who first distilled it, is truly a product of the island. The abundance of molasses combined with the culinary ingenuity of early settlers and, of course, their legendary thirst for alcohol lead to this unique discovery in the production of spirits.
Sir John Gay was a respected leader and businessman who worked tirelessly in service of the island of Barbados. He refined the distillation process and began producing a noticeably superior product that we know today as Mount Gay Rum.
Barbados originally discovered by the Portuguese, “Barbados” which means bearded ones, was the name given to the island to describe the lush, “bearded” trees that grew in abundance. Later settlers to the island found the rich soil and favorable wet season ideal for growing sugar cane.
