Land of rum for more than 300 years, Barbados is home of Mount Gay distillery, running uninterrupted since 1703, a world record!
The rum produced in Barbados, called “Bajan Rum”, was Georges Washington’s favorite, insisting for this specific beverage to be served during his inaugural ceremony as the 1st president of the Unites States of America in 1789.
Nowadays, Bajan rum punch is the signature cocktail of Barbados Island.
