Dating back to 1753, Hampden Estate is one of only two remaining independent distilleries in Jamaica. Having changed ownership several times over the years, in 2009, the Hussey family bought the estate and decided, for the first time in the history of the distillery, to age casks on site with the idea of creating the first official bottling. In 2018, the first bottles of aged rum bearing the name of Hampden Estate were exported, 265 years after the creation of the estate.
