Established 2008

Chris Blackwell was born into a family long-settled in Jamaica—exporting bananas, coconuts and rum—since 1625. Early on, Chris had an ear for music. In 1959, he founded Island Records, bringing reggae, and the sounds of Jamaica, to the world.

With Blackwell Fine Jamaican Rum, Chris brings the taste of Jamaica to the world since launching it in 2008. Taken from his family’s time-honoured recipe—and enjoyed by the many musician and artist friends visiting Chris at GoldenEye—this deep, rich and fragrant rum is filled with the warmth and sensuality of Jamaica, making it one of the finest gifts the island has to offer.
