Long Pond Distillery and Rest & Be Thankful have a common characteristic. They both have been named after a place. Long Pond Distillery was named after a mountain peak name in the Jamaican Cockpit Country. Rest & Be Thankful was named after a scenic viewpoint in Glen Croe, Scotland overlooking a mythical road built by the British military built in 1753, same year Long Pond distillery was. Rest & Be Thankful is also a mountain peak located 10 km / 7 miles away from Long Pond peak in the Cockpit Country.
