Velier R.A.S.C. Jamaica Rum 1954 2nd Release

Velier was founded by Casimir Chaix in Genoa in 1947 as a wine and spirits importer and distributor. By the 1980s they were still a small family-company with less than ten staff. This all changed in 1986 when it was purchased by Luca Gargano, a former brand ambassador for Saint James who was at the time still in his twenties. Under his direction, they selected their first single cask whiskies in 1992, and their first rum in 1996. In the decades that followed, Velier have gone on to become one of the most collectible brands in the industry, and Gargano has positioned them as the one of the foremost authorities and bottlers of rum anywhere in the world.

This 2020 limited edition is the second release of the Royal Army Service Corps, a Jamaican pure single rum vatted from wicker-clad stone flagons of the British Royal Navy, filled in 1954. The first release was bottled in 2017 for the 70th anniversary of Velier, and consisted of nine flagons drawn from the private collections of Italian collector, Giuseppe Begnoni.

This release sees eighteen flagons vatted from both the collections of Luca Gargano and Giuseppe Begnoni. 

One of just 108 bottles.
