A bottle of Hudson's Bay Jamaica Rum bottled by Hudson's Bay Company. This was distilled in Jamaica and imported to London Docks, where it was matured and bottled by Hudson's Bay Company of Scotland Ltd. We estimate this was bottled in the 1960s.
Please note, there is no size or ABV stated on the labels, but this appears to be a 75cl bottle. This bottle has a low fill level.
The Hudson's Bay Company was incorporated on 2 May 1670 as The Governor & Company of Adventurers of England Trading into Hudson's Bay, with a royal charter from King Charles II. It gained a monopoly in the fur trade and was at one point the largest land owner in the world. Later, it began importing spirits into the Hudson Bay area, and is known for its 'Best Procurable' brand of Scotch whisky. The earliest reference to rum in the company records is from 24 May 1775, regarding the shipping of 30 gallons of rum.
