The total eclipse of Rum.
 
The story of Mount Gay Rum begins in the year 1703, on the Caribbean island of Barbados, when John Sober (seriously...), inherited a distillery, and invited Sir John Gay to help manage it. Sir John Gay jumped at the opportunity to give the Barbadians something special. He refined the production process and began producing noticeably superior product that has survived to this day. Mount Gay is one of the oldest, if not the oldest, Rum brands in the World.
 
Mount Gay Eclipse is the measure used by Master Distiller Allen Smith to judge all other Mount Gay products. This is surely a testament to its greatness. It was named after the "double phenomenon" that took place when a solar eclipse occurred at the same time as Halley’s comet passed earth in 1910. The flavors capture its island home, with a thick sweetness and rich fruity tang throughout. It rounds off well with a mouth watering spicy kick.
