The Hampden Estate dates back to 1753 and still specialises in the making of Heavy Pot Stlill Rum. Hampden use fermenters that are over 100 years old, culture their own yeast and utilise traditional pot stills but combine these traditional practices with the latest technology and laboratory techniques to carefully control the final output of its rums. Hampden Estate rum is widely used in the blending of other rums throughout the world but they have recently developed their own brand. The local market in Jamaica is renowned for its ‘overproof’ rums and Rum Fire from Hampden estate is one such brand. However, the company has recently developed Hampden Gold exclusively for the very sophisticated international markets that are well used to high quality premium spirits. Perfect for mixing and cocktails.
