Mount Gay is made on Barbados, a Caribbean coral island that’s a mere 14 miles wide by 21 miles long. Barbados is often credited for being the first country to make rum and Mount Gay is believed to be the oldest rum brand name. Mount Gay make tentative claims to their estate first making rum in 1663 but the earliest written evidence is a deed of sale dated 20th February 1703 which documents rum making equipment on the estate.
