Located high up in the Blue Mountains, Sangster's was created in 1974 by Scottish immigrant Dr Ian Sangster. They age and blend their own fine rums plus a range of exotic, rumbased liqueurs using home-produced natural essences and extracts.
Freelance blender Dr Ian Sangster, who bought spirit from various distillers on the island through the Pool, continued his independent making of Drambuie-style liqueurs and 'O1d Jamaica Gold de Luxe Rum'.
