Diamond and Port Mourant <SV>PM 1995 Velier 19 Year Old Blended in the Barrel
One of a series of legendary bottlings from the brief but beautiful period (2004-2015) when Velier owned a small stake in Demerara Distillers Ltd (DDL), which afforded Luca Gargano privileged access the warehouses and his pick of casks to bottle. Sadly "The Age of Velier Demerara" has passed but the memory of it lives on in these spectacular releases.
A blended in the barrel rum from Diamond distillery. This is comprised of 2 experimental barrels containing rum from the Diamond metal coffey still and the wooden double pot still from Port Mourant.
Port Mourant distillery closed in the 1950s, and its still was transferred to Uitvlugt where the barrels in this blend was filled. The Port Mourant still was then moved to Diamond in 2000 when Uitvlugt closed as well.
Distilled in 1995 and bottled in July 2014 this is one of only 564 bottles.
