Antigua 2012 Velier Catch of the Day Single Cask Heavy / 70th Anniversary

Catch of the Day was a 2018 addition to Velier's range of incredible rums. This was distilled at Antigua Distillery; the home of English Harbour.

Luca Gargano selected 27 'special casks' that had an unusually high level of congeners; 218 g/hlpa to be precise. This special 70th anniversary bottling is drawn from just one of them, barrel #2598.

Velier was founded in Genoa in 1947 as a wine and spirits importer 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.
