product Details

Caribbean Rum 2008 Moon Import

Moon Import was founded by Pepi Mongiardino in 1980. Although primarily concerned with the distribution and bottling of single malt, the company has released some spectacular rum as well. While the new owners of companies like Samaroli and Silver Seal have placed a greater emphasis on rum in 21st century, Mongiardino was an early advocate of the spirit, particularly Demerara rum and the Moon Import catalogue routinely featured a number of what are now very special bottles. Always beautifully labelled, Pepi is acclaimed for designing the packaging for Moon Import bottles himself, often using images found in old books. These iconic designs, coupled with the quality of the liquid saw Moon Import steadily grow in popularity, and they are now some of brightest gems in any collection.

A blended Caribbean rum combining patent still rums from Jamaica, Guyana and Nicaragua. Distilled in 2008 and bottled in 2017.

One of 787 bottles.
