About Mount Gay EclipseMount Gay Distillery is located in Barbados. The brand dates all the way back to 1703 and is said to be one of the oldest rum houses in the world. The distillery, initially named Mount Gilboa, was renamed at the turn of the 19th century, adopting distillery manager Sir John Gay Alleyne’s namesake.
Today the distillery produces high-quality rum using the best ingredients, which includes coral-filtered water, a combination of naturally-occurring yeast and their proprietary strain. They employ a combination of pot and column stills, blending together the intense aromas and flavors of the first with the smoothness of the second. Over the past 4 decades, they have had 4 Master Blenders, the current one being Trudiann Branker. The spirit matures in American Whiskey, Bourbon, and Cognac oak casks, with others being brought in for various special editions. Mount Gay is home to the largest stock of aged rum in Barbados.
Mount Gay Eclipse is a showcase of their signature style. Crisp and aromatic, it's built on the body and aroma that Master Blender Trudiann Branker builds their expressions on. Named after the solar eclipse and the passing of Halley's comet in 1910, the Barbados rum is crafted with molasses that ferment for 3 days using in-house yeast, then distilled twice using a traditional column and double retort pot still, and aged in American charred ex-whiskey barrels.
