Get yourself in the draw to win an Icey-Tek chilly bin thanks to Mount Gay Rum
Since 1703, Mount Gay Rum has been made at the same plantation on the Caribbean Island of Barbados, and is considered to be the world’s oldest rum.
Today, Mount Gay master blender Allen Smith oversees production of the brand’s rums, with a signature style that centres on aging and blending single and double distilled rums.
Mount Gay has a long association with sailing, and is a major sponsor of yachting regattas globally, so it’s little surprise that Mount Gay rum is a main ingredient in the Stirling Punch cocktail, named after the famous yachtsman, Harold Stirling Vanderbilt – made with Mount Gay Rum, a grain spirit such as whisky, and various juices. If that doesn’t float your boat, try a classic Mount Gay rum daiquiri (recipe below).
Much loved by boaties and those who fish, Icy-Tek chilly bins are billed as the toughest cool boxes in the world. Super robust, uber-insulated, double hinged and lockable, they're perfect for chilling everything from drinks and picnics to your fishing catch. This week Toast and Mount Gay Rum have a limited-edition red Mount Gay 40L Icey-Tek chilly bin valued at $240 to give away to one lucky reader (pictured below).
