A visit to Hampden

Recently we were visited by  Mr. Nick Ferris of the Rum Collective and would like to thank him for his kind words and  a great review.

"Immediately my nose fills with .romas of rum, but more than that. It's that big bold pot still kind we love in Jamaican rums. The passing of this liquid landmark or rather olfactory threshold brings us to the home of one of the oldest sugar estates in Jamaica, dating back to 1753. Today, under direction of the Hussey Family, this historical site has a bright future, heated up by their relatively new white overproof rum called, RumFire."
