n the history of rum, Jamaica is absolutely considered the number one country. And it is to rediscover its history that we created the National Rum of Jamaica range, which features single-mark editions of historic Jamaican rums. The aim is to create a repertoire of these recipes, which until a few years ago had hardly been explored.
The National Rum of Jamaica series encapsulates the most authentic releases of Jamaican rums. In the early nineteenth century Jamaica was the world’s most rum-producing island, with more than a hundred sugar mills and distilleries attached. Like the other former British colonies ( Trinidad, Barbados, Guyana) Jamaica sold its rum in bulk to British blenders in Europe, who blended it in different styles due to the different marks each distillery produced. The marks, acronyms that stand for barrels, are specific formulas peculiar to each distillery and differ according to the type of fermentation and distillation, giving rise in rum to different nonalcoholic substances called congeners ( esters, aldehydes and higher alcohols), in fact they are the essential oils that form the aromatic bouquet of the product. The National Rum of Jamaica range enhances two celebrated Jamaican distilleries, Monymusk and Long Pond with bottlings, for single marks, full grade and tropical aging, never before produced in the history of rum.
