Cuvée presentation

A 17 year old Uitvlugt molasses-based rum distilled in 1997 in the distillery’s four-column Savalle still and bottled in 2014. This bottling contains rum from five casks, marked ULR for Uitvlugt Light Rum, 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 friendship with Yesu Persaud. These selections 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 1,404 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.
