Mount Gilboa 2008 Velier 9 Year Old / 70th Anniversary

A barrel proof 9 year old single rum, blended from 3 ex-French brandy casks.

Distilled in 2008 at Mount Gay distillery and bottled in 2017 to commemorate the 70th anniversary of Italian import giants, Velier. The label features the artwork #108 by Warren Khong.

Mount Gilbao was a style of rum introduced by the Ward family in the last few years of their ownership of Mount Gay distillery (which has lasted over 100 years).

Velier was founded in Genoa in 1947 as a wine and spirits imported and distributor. They selected their first single cask whiskies in 1992, bottled for them by Signatory Vintage, and have gone on to become one of the most collectible brands in the industry. Luca Gargano's involvement with the company has also positioned them as the one of the foremost authorities and bottlers of collectible rum as well.
