Default Wedderburn and Plummer Stills?

I was reading the rumeliers webpage and I remember hearing about these stills in the book RUM. Any info on them? What distillery are the from? Long Pond, Money musk, etc..?

Long Pond and Money Musk are in Jamaica. All of their export rum is sold in bulk to blenders and bottlers in the UK and Europe.

Plummer and Wedderburn were not names for stills, but are two of the four or five main classifications the British had on Jamaica rum distillate in the late 19th and early 20th century (when it was all pot-still) and these were the types the British took for themselves as the 'home-trade' quality.

ahhh, thanks for the insight guys. I'd really like to track down what jamaican distilleries (think theres 5?) contribute to certain private rum labels, but thats a mission for another day. The info about the W and P is appreciated as well and makes sense to me now.

You're right there are a few classifications that used to be used high continental is one, which described rum that was destined for the European and UK markets.
