The Hampden estate was founded in 1753 by a Scotsman named Archibald Sterling in the Queen of Spain Valley in Trelawny Parish, Jamaica. For 250 years it remained family-owned, selling rum to third-party blenders and independent bottlers. Mismanagement, however, caused it to run into financial difficulties in 2003, with the Jamaican government stepping in to take over its ownership and part of its debt in order to preserve the jobs of its employees. They sold it in 2009 to the Hussey family's Everglades Farms, which as its first point of business began depositing barrels that would later become the distillery's first official Hampden Estate-labeled bottling of rum, launched in partnership with Velier in 2018. Known for its heavy, ester-based style, Hampden is joined by Worthy Park as the only two Jamaican distilleries that produce exclusively pure single rums (using only discontinuous stills). It currently has four stills: two from Forsyths in Scotland, one from Vendome in Kentucky and another from T&T Engineering in South Africa.

This single cask version is part of the 2020 Trelawny Endemic Birds series. Distilled in 2012, this is an OWH-branded rum.
