Discover More About Our Products

Mount Gay has been around since 1703. This product of the beautiful Caribbean island of Barbados was relatively unknown outside of its home country for quite some time. That is, until John Gay came along. He took that rum distillery and honed its processes until they were perfect. The product of all of his effort is the rum that we know today as Mount Gay. With more than three centuries of experience under its belt, Mount Gay is a strong company that definitely knows the importance of craftsmanship.

Mount Gay Eclipse is a 100% Barbadian rum. Made using nothing but natural ingredients from the island itself, the recipe sounds deceptively simple. High-quality Barbadian sugarcane is mixed with triple-filtered groundwater. To this is added a special strain of yeast to aid in the fermentation process. After distillation in copper pot stills, the resulting spirit is left to mature in charred white oak barrels. It is during this maturation period that the rum will gain its character and distinctive flavour.

Medium-bodied and infinitely warming, Mount Gay Eclipse is a floral and fruity rum with a beautiful amber colour. The flavour of the toasted oak barrels comes through when sipping this beautiful spirit on its own. Its bright finish makes this rum one that you will find yourself returning to again and again.

Mount Gay Eclipse Rum Mini Bottles
Showcasing the distinctly powerful, flavourful and spicy rum tastings from Barbados, a Mount Gay Rum 5cl surprisingly serves up rum with a mild to moderate punch. The Mount Gay Eclipse Rum, in particular, embodies a well-balanced character which is very much unlike its predictably rough counterparts shamelessly showing off their ragged edges.
Like most rums out there, however, Mount Gay Rum mini bottles open up to a strong bouquet of florals and spices initially not ideal for sniffing but then, eventually mellows down to the impeccable sweetness of vanilla accentuated by the delicate smell of honey. The palate is characterised to be well-rounded, carrying all of the tasty flavours anyone can expect from a rum -- spicy, fruity, smokey and sweet all at the same time. The drink finishes with lingering warmth and leaves an aftertaste of toasted oak.
Mount Gay Rum miniatures are presented in small, transparent bottles that bear all the labels found in a regular-sized package. These are easily customisable and are ideal for gifting and giving away as favours. Since a Mount Gay Rum small bottle serves a generally non-overpowering spirit, this mini serving is great for sampling and are very approachable, even for the untrained palate.
