Settlers had been putting stills to use as early as 1667 on the Mount Gay Plantation. Lt. William Gay bought the St. Lucy estate in 1663 and in 1703 regular distillation began on the site. This expression of Mount Gay Rum is a pot still distillation of local molasses – giving a heavier rum with more flavour – which has then been aged in oak barrels.
