product Details

Versailles 2004 Thompson Brothers 14 Year Old / Nauticus & RMW

A pot distilled rum from Diamond distillery in Guyana. This was produced on the Versailles wooden pot still, which is steeped in the nation's rum history. The Versailles estate produced rum up until the late 1960s, following the closure of which the wooden pot still was transferred first to Enmore, and then to Uitvlugt, two of the country's legendary closed distilleries. Diamond is now the only remaining facility in the country, but with this and several other historic stills in operation there, produces a number of different, and increasingly collectible styles of rum.

The Thompson Brothers began their whisky bottling in enterprise in 2013, establishing the Black Isle Whisky Company in their native Dornoch. The brothers, Simon and Philip, renamed the operation as the Dornoch Distilling Company in 2015, opening the Dornoch distillery the following year. In addition to distilling their own whisky, their independent bottlings continue to flourish, with many excpetional tasting and fantastically labelled single malts and rums released under the Thompson Bros banner.

This is a 2004 vintage rum, aged 14 years and bottled exclusively for Royal Mile Whiskies and Nauticus bar in Edinburgh.

One of 250 bottles.
