Hampden Great House Distillery Edition 2023
Why it’s different
The Distillery Edition, here in its 2022 version, is a blend of the most representative marks of the unique style of rums from Hampden Estate, a historic Jamaican distillery active since 1753. Located in the province of Trelawny, in the grand cru of Jamaican rum, and run since 2009 by the Hussey family, Hampden Estate is known for having the best plots of land in the country, with one of the highest yields per hectare. A unique rum is produced here, characterised by spring water, prolonged fermentation with wild yeasts, distillation in copper double retort pot stills, tropical ageing and no added sugar or additives.
Like the 2021 edition, these official bottlings represent a historic moment for the world of spirits, given that this is a rum that can normally only be purchased at the distillery, or in very rare editions outside the Jamaican market. The label echoes the design of the great house, where these incredible rums have been produced for over three hundred years.
How do I drink it?
Si degusta liscio, in una bella pausa di relax. Gli abbinamenti con cibo, sigari, dessert potrebbero essere infiniti, ma non sono necessari.
