This renowned distillery is located in the Trelawny Parish in the north west of Jamaica, an area historically representing the grand cru of Jamaican rum, characterized by an incredible biodiversity.
Hampden Estate has been in continuous operation since its founding in 1753, making it one of the oldest estates in the Caribbean. It has maintained the same production methods and techniques for the last two centuries, such as the use of its own spring water, prolonged fermentation time with wild yeasts, tropical ageing, no added colorants and sugar, and distillation exclusively in pot stills.
With these Pure Jamaican Single Rums, Master Distiller Vivian Wisdom has created the very first aged distillery releases from Hampden Estate in 265 years, which both celebrate the uniqueness of Jamaican rum production and present Hampden to the World Stage. A world premiere.
Aromas of tropical fruits with toasted spice notes building and prominent clove notes.
On the palate the spice and bananas lead with a generous dusting of ground clove and cinnamon. The banana remains as apples and pineapples roll in. Dark and weight oily notes sneak in behind. Cinnamon spice and sweet banana fade on the finish to reveal apple jam and mint.
Perfect sipping rum.
