Mount Gay Rum will release a new limited-edition expression, The Master Blender Collection: Pot Still.
The second edition in this series — following Mount Gay XO Peat Smoke Rum — and the first blend from the new female Master Blender, Trudiann Branker, Pot Still celebrates the original way Mount Gay made rum for about 200 years, using only rums distilled in double retort pot stills.
After selecting a specific batch of pot still liquid, Trudiann placed it into virgin ex-whiskey casks for six months prior to bottling, to enhance the spicy and roasted nutty notes, the company says.
Only 4,920 bottles are available globally, with just 1,002 available in the U.S.
Mount Gay The Master Blender Collection: Pot Still is bottled at cask strength at 96 proof. The suggested retail price is $170 per 750-ml. bottle.
