Unveiling of the ‘World’s Oldest Rum’ at the Mount Gay Visitors Centre

“After remaining undistributed for well over two centuries in a British cellar, three bottles from a cache of the world’s oldest rum are being returned to their rightful birthplace in Barbados.”

Mount Gay Distilleries Ltd., officially the world’s oldest rum distiller, successfully purchased the bottles of historic Barbados rum which date back to 1780, when a total of 12 bottles were auctioned last December by Christie’s in London.”

Donville Inniss, Minister of Industry, Commerce and Trade, gave the main address, while noted writer Peter Laurie, author of 'The Barbadian Rum Shop: The Other Watering Hole', looked at Rum's history.
