Founded in 1753, Hampden Estate has been distilling rum for almost three centuries in the Trelawny Parish, historically known as the grand cru of Jamaican rum. Produced with unique and partially secret methods that have remained unchanged since the 18th century, Hampden Estate rum has a distinct and iconic aromatic profile. This is in great part due to an extremely high level of esters achieved by a very long, complex process.
The rum has been aged for 7 years in Jamaica's tropical climate, equivalent to 20-25 years of maturation in the more mild, European climate. A fantastic sipper and a great premium cocktail ingredient.
Intense fruit on the nose with dried oranges, baked apple, and overripe banana and pineapple. A persistent palate with ginger, vanilla, dark chocolate, and coffee is followed by a lingering and enticing finish.
