In 2009, Hampden Estate started to age its Pure Single Rums, opening a new era in the world of spirits. Produced with. Unique and partly secret methods that have remained unchanged since the 18th century, Hampden Estate has a distinct and iconic aromatic profile. This is in great part due to an extremely high level of esters achieved by a very long and complex process. The rum has been aged for 8 years in the tropical Jamaican climate, equivalent to almost 25 years of maturation in the European climate. Excellent for sipping and mixology.
