Rockley 1986 Velier

The Rockley Still is a near-mythical piece of machinery. The tiny copper pot still was once used on the Rockley sugar plantation to make rum, and was moved to the West Indiia Rum Distillery on Barbados in the early 20th century. It has however, been inactive for over half a century, with the distillery merely producing Rockley Still "style" rums. This is one of them, and no less of a rarity in its own right.

This example was distilled in 1986 and bottled in 1997 by THomson & Company for Velier, from cask #424.

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.
