HISTORY

Founded in 1753, Long Pond is a sugar estate and distillery in the Jamaican Parish of Trelawny, which is also home to Hampden Estate. Back then, Long Pond was just one of many sugar estates, the majority of which have been shut down or consolidated over the course of history due to falling sugar prices. These consolidations led to larger and larger areas of sugar cane owned by the surviving sugar estates. Today, Long Pond Distillers Limited is part of National Rums of Jamaica (NRJ) while the Long Pond Sugar Estate, together with Hampden Estate, has been bought by the Hussey family in 2009. The structure behind NRJ is described in the article on Clarendon. Long Pond distillery had to close in 2012 due to leakages at their dunder storage tanks. Pictures suggest that commencing production would require massive repairs and investments but apparently they have resumed operations earlier this year. They have started fermentations at the beginning of 2017 and perhaps even the first rounds of distillation.
