Founded in 1753, Long Pond is a sugar estate and distillery in the Jamaican Parish of Trelawny (also home to Hampden Estate). It was one of many sugar estates that were shut down or consolidated due to falling sugar prices over the course of time.
In the 1940s Seagram CEO, Samuel Bronfman acquired Long Pond distillery from the Jamaican government, using the rum to establish the Captain Morgan brand. The Long Pond Sugar Estate, together with Hampden Estate, was bought by the Hussey family in 2009.
Today, Long Pond Distillers Ltd is part of National Rums of Jamaica (NRJ).
