Holmes Cay is an independent bottling company from New York City. Founded by New Yorker rum aficionado Eric Kaye in 2019, they focus on finding the very best rums and bottling them at cask strength. Kaye used to work as a producer and music composer for film, TV, and commercials, but has also been an avid diver for decades. His favorite pastime brought him into contact with fantastic rare Caribbean rums. He felt he needed to share these with his fellow Americans, which is how Holmes Cay came to be.

Passionately standing behind the tradition and honor that is an integral part of rum, Kaye hopes to bring incredible as-of-yet-unknown rums to the US, introducing spirit-lovers to the best-kept secrets of the rum world. How fitting that the very first release ― Holmes Cay Barbados 2005 ― comes from the legendary Foursquare Distillery in Barbados.

This British style rum was distilled in 2005 using a blend of copper pot and column still distillation, then aged in ex-bourbon casks for 11 years in the tropical climate of Barbados and another 3 in the UK. It's the embodiment of what Holmes Cay stands for and is bottled completely unadulterated at 128.6 proof. Only 504 bottles of this liquid gold were produced.
