At Hampden, fermentation is like a dream for anyone who can grasp the magic and mystery of this process that can transform flour into bread, grapes into wine and fermented sugarcane into rum. Alcoholic fermentation lasts between 8 and 15 days and takes place in truncated cone-shaped wooden vats whose slats speak of the passing of time. This happens thanks to the wild yeasts that live and reproduce in the fermentation rooms.About esters, the Hampden Estate distillery has perpetuated a method over the centuries and passed it on tothe last two surviving distilleries which continue using it. The process of producing high ester rum is highly complicated, and it’s astonishing to think it was developed in a time before modern science, relying only on empirical research and without chromatography etc. Since the late 18th century, Trelawny rums have always obtained the highest prices on the world market.

This wonderfully aromatic rum is characterized by its long, wild fermentation and its tropical maturation period of at least 8 years. Likewise, the rum from the Hampden Distillery is neither colored nor added with sugar.
