Launched in 2012, this is the first white rum to be launched under the Mount Gilboa brand, incidently a brand named after the same estate as Mount Gay and the two rums both are made at the same distillery.

The 280-acre Mount Gay estate in the northern parish of St. Lucy was formed when William Sandiford purchased and amalgamated a number of smaller plantations under the name Mount Gilboa. The estate passed to Sandiford's son who sold the estate to John Sober in 1747. (Yup, the jokes inevitably included: "No matter how much of his rum he drunk he still remained Sober.") He and his son Cumberbatch were English absentee landlords and the estate was actually run on their behalf by an MP and eminent Barbadian, Sir John Gay Alleyne. When he died in 1801 the Sober family re-named their estate in his honour. As a Mount Alleyne rum was already in existence the Estate became Mount Gay.
