Monymusk Plantation Rum unveiled the new designs for its premium rums – Classic Gold and Special Reserve – at the 2022 Jamaica Rum Festival’s launch held at the Formal Gardens of Devon House on Tuesday night.

Brand mixologist Trevor Luke showcased his expertise, creating two distinctively smooth mixes from the premium rums – Monymusk Classic Daiquiri and Monymusk Dark ‘n’ Stormy.

The Monymusk Classic Gold is a blend of the finest matured Jamaican rums crafted from the Long Pond and Clarendon Distilleries. The Classic Gold 5-Year-Old Rum encapsulates the authentic Jamaican spirit since 1755.

The Monymusk Plantation Rum Special Reserve is a blend of the finest matured Jamaican rums crafted from the Long Pond and Clarendon Distilleries. These blends were aged in charred American oak casks for a minimum of 10 years, allowing for maturation and mellowing of its taste. The Special Reserve 10-Year-Old Rum encapsulates the authentic Jamaican spirit since 1755.

Long Pond Distilleries Limited located in Clark’s Town, Trelawny, is categorised as one of the oldest distilleries in Jamaica. It is one of the few distilleries in operation that produce only pot rums from vestige iconic pot stills. The double retort John Dore and Blair’s pot stills gives rise to unique blends that are natural, delicate and of complex flavour producing the finest aged rums such as Monymusk Classic Gold and Monymusk Plantation Rum Special Reserve.
