Hampden Estate 8 Year Jamaican Rum is distilled at the legendary Hampden Estate, located in Trelawny, Jamaica, that has been producing rum since around 1753. To this day the distillery has retained the traditional production methods that made the aromatic, high ester Jamaican rums famous worldwide. After more than 265 years of uninterrupted activity, Hampden, the iconic Jamaican distillery, finally launches its own bottling of aged rums on the international scene!

Trelawny rums were developed in the late 18th century in this particular region of Jamaica. The Hampden Estate distillery has perpetuated the method over the centuries, and passed it on to the last two surviving distilleries which continue using it. The process of producing high ester rum is highly complicated, and it’s astonishing to think it was developed in a time before modern science, relying only on empirical research and without chromatography etc. Rum experts Richard Seale and Gianni Capovilla, who visited Hampden at different times, were both fascinated by the production process at the distillery. Since the late 18th century, Trelawny rums have always obtained the highest prices on the world market.
