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.
