Hampden Estate is a renowned distillery located in the Trelawny Parish in the north west of Jamaica, an area historically representing the grand cru of Jamaican rum, characterized by an incredible biodiversity.

Hampden Estate has been in continuous operation since its founding in 1753, making it one of the oldest estates in the Caribbean. It has maintained the same production methods and techniques for the last two centuries, such as the use of its own spring water, prolonged fermentation time with wild yeasts, tropical ageing, no added colorants and sugar, and distillation exclusively in pot stills.

With these rums, Hampden Estate have created their very first aged distillery releases in 265 years, which both celebrate the uniqueness of Jamaican rum production and present Hampden to the world stage. A global premiere.

Aged for a minimum of 8 years in the tropics after a long, natural fermentation, this blend of 100% traditional Pot Still marks is characterised by a high ester profile and tropical notes.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Pineapple, passion fruit and new-car leather. Candied and jellied fruit notes develop: papaya, guava, lime, Seville orange, blood orange and nectarine. Banana and toasted spice notes build, with prominent clove notes.

Palate: The spice and bananas lead: creamy banana pie with a generous dusting of ground clove and cinnamon. The banana remains as apples and pineapples roll in. Dark and weight oily notes sneak in behind.

Finish: Cinnamon spice and sweet banana fade to reveal apple jam and mint.

Please note: Vintages may vary. If you require a specific vintage please contact us in advance to check.
