    The rough seas, a slippery deck and a struggle for sure footing almost cost Paul Sperry his life; and began his long and ambitious quest for a solution. One day in 1935, after watching his dog dart effortlessly across the ice on a cold Connecticut day, he was inspired to carve grooves – like those on his dog's paws – into the bottom of a rubber sole. In that moment of inspiration, the world's first boat shoe was born.

    Every great story begins with a time and a place.  For Mount Gay Rum that time and place is the Caribbean Island of Barbados in 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.
