Hampden Estate is a historic and heritage distillery in Jamaica with over 260 years of history behind it. Its rums represent the best of the tradition of Caribbean and island distillates. The best sugar plantations are selected within the estate which, after distillation, age for 8 years with the tropical climate of the island, which is equivalent to about 25 years of maturation compared to the colder and drier European climate.
To produce an “industrial” rum (this is how rums produced in the islands of former Spanish domination are called) molasses is used, which are often nothing more than sugar beet residues after processing for the production of the latter. This is then fermented, created a must and distilled. Subsequently these can be aged in wood and then created a blend of rums of various degrees of aging in order to find a perfect balance.
Brilliant amber colour. Characteristic olfactory profile on the nose with notes of cooked apple, raisins and nuts, candied fruit, honey and vanilla. On the palate rich, deep and with a very persistent finish.
Perfect at the end of a meal or as a meditation.
