Mount Gay’s roots can be traced back to the processing of Barbadian sugar cane three centuries ago, making it the oldest rum and continually produced spirit in the world. Through centuries of experimentations the blending of single and double distillates has become an art form for Mount Gay® — passed down from generations of master blenders to successors.
Avuá Cachaça is single-sourced and pot distilled at a 3 generation farm about 4 hours from Rio, and comes in both 84 proof unaged Prata and the unique South American indigenous Amburana wood aged expression. Our mission is to challenge the perception of the cachaça category as a one-trick caipirinha pony through a terroir-driven artisanal product that expresses the 500 years of traditional production in Brazil. Throw away your pre-conceptions of what this Brazilian spirit is and let us guide you on a journey of new discoveries. Saude!
Denizen starts with aged and fresh charcoal-filtered Trinidadian rum from the Angostura distillery, where they are column-distilled and aged up to five years in small bourbon oak barrels. Next, 15 types of Jamaican pot-distilled rums are added and blended in Amsterdam where rum blending has been taking place since the early 1700s, when the Netherlands colonized much of the Caribbean.
