MOUNT GAY RUM

For over 300 years, Mount Gay has been produced on the same plantation in Barbados and in 1925, Mount Gay Distilleries, as it is known today, came into existence. Though the first surviving written evidence that rum was being produced in Barbados is a legal deed dated 20th February 1703, the contents of that document is evidence in itself that rum was being produced prior to that date. Most experts believe that it is from as early as 1663 when rum was produced in Barbados, making Mount Gay the world's oldest rum.
Master Blender

Allen Smith

Smith studied to become a Chartered Biologist at the Institute of Biology in England. He graduated in 1988 with a degree in Biochemistry and Microbiology.Smith first joined Mount Gay Rum Distilleries in Barbados in 1991 as a Quality Assurance Assistant under then Master Blender J. Edwards. He assisted Edwards with the development of the brand's prized Extra Old blend. After a sabbatical from Mount Gay Rum, Smith returned to the Distillery as a manager with the significant responsibility for Research and Development within the organization. He applied his background in biology and microbiology to incorporate a scientific approach to blending, ultimately leading him to refine the production process for Eclipse Silver in 2007.

In 2008, Smith crafted Mount Gay 1703 Old Cask Selection, an extraordinarily refined and highly acclaimed blend of reserve rums. Smith used rums aged 10 to 30 years to create the velvet-like texture and taste profile found in 1703, evocative of an aromatic Bourbon or single-malt Scotch. 1703 Old Cask Selection has since won numerous awards and superlative commendations throughout the world.

Due to his dedication and hard work, Smith was promoted to Master Blender at Mount Gay Rum Distillery in 2010. In his role, Smith oversees all aspects of the brand's new blending facility at St. Lucy, with a continuing focus on innovation shaped by years of experience.
