Dreaming of Christmas in paradise? One sip of Mount Gay, and you’ll feel ALL the island holiday vibes. This kick-ass rum hails from Barbados, where the distillery was founded way back in 1703 - and with more than 300 years of experience under their belts, you can bet they make a lush tot.  

Mount Gay’s distillers and blenders work with different stills and cask finishes to create rums that are wicked when sipped straight or mixed in cocktails. Our current fave? It’s gotta be Mount Gay Black Barrel. Aged in mega-charred ex-bourbon barrels, this epic rum delivers flavours that are both festive AND tropical - we’re talkin’ lush notes of lychee, gingerbread and toffee, backed up by a smattering of dried fruit and spices… 


Forget mince pies and sherry - all Santa wants when he slides down the chimney is this next-level cocktail. 

Mount Gay Old Fashioned 

  • 1.5oz Mount Gay Black Barrel 
  • 1 tsp brown sugar 
  • Few dashes orange bitters 
  • Orange peel twist, for garnish 

Combine the brown sugar and bitters in an Old Fashioned glass and stir until the sugar dissolves. Add a large ice cube, pour in the Black Barrel and stir. Express the orange peel over the drink by twisting it, then use it as garnish. Boom!
