Influential entrepreneur and record producer Chris Blackwell was born into one of Jamaica’s oldest merchant families, the Lindo’s, who first came to the island in 1625. He founded Island Records in 1959, introducing the world to Millie, Bob Marley, Grace Jones, U2, Robert Palmer and Cat Stevens. Before there was music, there was rum. The Lindo’s were traditionally involved in rum distilling, once owning the famous J. Wray and Nephew. Returning to his roots, Chris created an exceptional dark Jamaican rum based on an original family recipe. It’s his special way of celebrating Jamaica’s unique and limitless energy.
