History

In 1943, during his second journey to the Americas, Christopher Columbus came upon The Virgin Islands. After many months of suffering the harsh conditions on-board, Columbus was completely captivated by the provoking image of the third largest Island with its shape of a reclining woman, he christened it "Virgin Gorda". By the end of the 17th Century its territory became part of the British Virgin Islands, its name being partially anglicised and thus becoming "Virgin Gorda". 


Description

Virgin Gorda is a golden rum, blended from rums from the British Caribbean islands; Barbados, Trinidad and Jamaica, produced by the distillation of fermented sugar cane, in pot-stills. After distillation, the rums go through a natural aging process in old, American Oak Bourbon barrels. Achieving an average age of 7 years, with 20% of 8 year old rum included in the blend.

A differentiating factor of Virgin Gorda compared with the majority of rums is its 100% natural state; no color, flavor or aroma additives are used. Trinidad provides refreshing notes and vanilla characteristics. Jamaica adds body and a strong backbone from the molasses. Barbados provides the strongest woody, aged characteristics, being the oldest rum of the blend with 8 years ageing.


Tasting notes
  • Appearence: brilliant and golden.
  • Nose: beautifully intense with natural vanilla notes from wood and creamy toffee aromas.
  • Palate: full-bodied, with an initial sweetness followed by the rich Bourbon-like tastiness of vanilla. Smooth and incredibly long.
