As is so often the case in small distilleries, a proportion of Hampden Estate's rum illicitly found its way into the local rum shop bars of Trelawny where it was sold as 'Hampden JB' from unmarked bottles kept under the counter.
This distinctively flavoured overproof rum is now officially sold under the Rum Fire brand name and marketed as being "The original Trelawny rum". Hampden Estate has earned a reputation for its heavy-bodied pot still high-ester bulk rums which have long been used as a flavouring element in many well-known rum blends.
