Cuvée presentation

A molasses-based rum produced at the Uitvlugt distillery (Guyana) in 1985 and bottled at cask strength after 27 years of maturation in a tropical climate. Of the 26 casks filled in 1985, only three remained, with the angel's share rising as high as 90%. This bottling was selected by the Genoese independent bottler Velier, in the period when Luca Gargano had access to the cellars of Demerara Distillers Limited thanks to his friend Yesu Persaud. These selections, and bottles such as this Uitvlugt in particular, played a key role in building Velier's renown, alongside its incredible Caroni bottlings. Velier no longer has access to DDL's stocks and these rums are now some of the most sought-after by collectors and enthusiasts due to the unique flavours and concentration offered by their tropical ageing. A limited edition of 814 bottles.

The distillery Uitvlugt

Built at the end of the 18th century, Uitvlugt is located on the western bank of the River Demerara, near the town of the same name founded by Dutch settlers in 1752. Nationalized in 1979 like many of the country's other distilleries, it was part of Demerara Distillers Ltd. until it closed in 1999. Although many distillations were completed in a Savalle still, Uitvlugt was also home to a Coffey still, a Versailles wood single pot still after Enmore closed in 1994, and a double pot still, also wooden, which is now kept at Port Mourant. After the distillery closed, all the distillation equipment was moved to Diamond, the country's last operating distillery.
