The exclusive sponsor of Alcademics.com this month is Mount Gay Rum. Mount Gay has been distilled on Barbados since 1703, and today is a flavorful combination of column and pot distilled rum. They offer four bottlings: Eclipse Silver, Eclipse, Extra Old, and 1703.
In 2007 I visited Barbados and Mount Gay (pictures here).
This year I met with brand ambassador Chesterfield Browne in San Francisco, and saw him again at Tales of the Cocktail.
And in last week's SF Chronicle someone wrote about the food (and rum) on Barbados.
