Jamaican rum distillery Hampden Estate has released its Great House Distillery Edition in the UK for the first time.
Created by master distiller Vivian Wisdom, the limited edition blends two of the distillery’s “most distinctive” marks, which are distilled and matured on the estate. The blend is said to result in an authentic, intense and fruity 59% ABV pure single rum.
Hampden Great House Distillery Edition pays tribute to the distillery’s surroundings in Trelawny, Jamaica, including its mansion, which was established in 1753 by the Stirling family, the first owner of the estate.
Just 240 bottles of the Great House Distillery Edition are now available in the market, exclusively distributed by premium drinks agency Speciality Brands.
Chris Seale, managing director of Speciality Brands, said: “Hampden Estate is renowned for making Jamaican rums of the highest quality which are praised by drinkers from all over the world.
“Great House is a celebration of the distillery’s talent and longstanding heritage. We’re very pleased to be in a position to introduce this exclusive edition to rum aficionados across the country.”
The spirit joins Hampden Estate 46˚ and Hampden Estate 60˚ rums, which are currently available at specialist retailers and bars in the UK.
