The National Rums of Jamaica LTD is a rum producing and exporting company that is jointly owned by the government of Jamaica, West Indies Rum Distillery Ltd. of Barbados and Demerara Distillers of Guyana, and encompasses Long Pond Distillery and Clarendon Distillery.


In the early 19th century, Jamaica was the largest rum producer in the world, with more than a hundred sugar estates and just as many distilleries.

Like the other ex-British colonies – Barbados, Trinidad, Guyana – Jamaica has been historically a supplier of rum for the British blenders in Europe and distilleries did not release official house bottlings.
