Mount Gay 2000 Isla Del Ron

This rum was distilled in Barbados in 2000 and bottled in 2016 by Isla Del Ron, a sub-brand of German independent bottler Malts of Scotland.

Malts of Scotland were founded in 2005 by whisky enthusiast and connoisseur, Thomas Ewers. Bottle number 68 of only 100 drawn from cask #14.

The oldest surviving deed for the Mount Gay distillery in Barbados dates back to 1703, making it the oldest commercial rum producer in the world. A 280-acre estate in the Saint Lucy parish, Mount Gay was originally called Mount Gilboa, but was renamed in 1801 after Sir John Gay Alleyne, who had managed it for owner, John Sober, since 1747. The estate was bought by Aubrey Fitz-Osbert Ward in 1918, and remained in his family until the death of his son in 1989. Majority ownership then passed to French giants, Remy Cointreau, with the Ward’s selling their remaining shares in 2014. Mount Gay is a single blended rum, producing distillates on both continuous column stills and pot stills, some of which are now over 100 years old.
