Uitvlugt SP-ICBU 1988 Velier 17 Year Old

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. 

This is a full proof Demerara rum from Uivlugt distillery in Guyana.

All four barrels contributing to this bottle were distilled on the Savalle still in 1988, each marked SP-ICBU. The latter acronym is the code for Uitvlugt distillery, the SP remains a mystery.

Uitvlugt closed down in 2000, with its still and barrel stock transferred to Diamond.

This was bottled in 2005 by Velier after ageing 17 years in tropical climate. The casks were selected by Luca Gargano.

One of 1091 bottles.
