Mount Gay has been distilling rum since 1703 making it the oldest, most storied, most nuanced rum in the world. Their unique double-spot distillation process came to Barbados with the first merchant ships and is the source of Mount Gay rums distinctive aromatic character. Eclipse is the reference for character, body and aroma by which the Master Blender uses to blend every variety of Mount Gay Rum.
For many rum aficionados Eclipse is also the reference by which all rum should be measured. Eclipse has a beautiful colour with aromas of vanilla and apricot. Light in body, with a smooth yet complex taste, it's perfect simply sipped over ice.
