Virgin Gorda Rum 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.
