A Legal Deed dated 20th of February, 1703 confirms the existence of a "Pot Still House" on our sugarcane estate in Barbados, establishing us as the world's oldest rum producer. Our name honours the pionerring spirit of Sir John Gay - a man who made it his imperative to improve upon the character and quality of rum.
Today, our Master Blender Allen Smith continues to build on the traditions of Sir John Gay - a legacy of handcraft honoured for over three centuries. With 1703 MASTER SELECT, he hand selects pot and column distilled rums from Mount Gay;s oldest reserves. 1703 MASTER SELECT is a discerning blend comprised of the rare and noteworthy barrels that Allen has carefully monitored over the years.
