A Blairmont single cask (10542) distilled in 1982 in the Uitvlugt distillery's four-column Savalle still and bottled at cask strength in 2011 by Velier after 29 years' maturation. After Blairmont closed in 1962, Uitvlugt reproduced its style under the mark B. Velier was founded in Genoa by Casimir Chaix in 1947. It was originally a small, family-run business specializing in the import and distribution of wine and spirits. Luca Gargano, a former representative for Saint James and serious rum collector and enthusiast, bought the business in 1986 and began bottling whisky first in 1992 and then rum in 1996. It was in 1996 that Gargano bottled his first Demerara rums. In 2004, Gargano was invited to Guyana to select casks by his friend Yesu Persaud, then the CEO of Demerara Distillers Limited (DDL). This partnership ended in 2015 when Persaud retired, but the rums bottled in the meantime became legendary.

The distillery Blairmont

The Blairmont plantation, named after its founder Lambert Blair, was founded on the West Bank of the River Berbice in the early 19th century. The first trace of distillation at Blairmont date back to 1862. The distillery closed in 1962 and it is not known what happened to its two-column Savalle still. Production of Blairmont nonetheless continued at Uitvlugt, which reproduced the style of the defunct distillery using its four-column Savalle still. After Uitvlugt closed in 1999, Diamond took over. In 1974, the Guyanese government nationalized the country’‘s distilleries, which become the property of Demerara Distillers Limited (DDL). Guyana’‘s last distilleries closed one after the other and only Diamond now remains. It is home to the famous wood stills of the former distilleries of Port Mourant, Versailles, Enmore and Uitvlugt.
