Velier Japoniani 2020 Releases 3 x 70cl

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 is a trio of rums released in 2020 by Velier. They are known as the Japoniani due to featuring labels sketched by Luca Gargano on a flight from Japan back to Italy.

The series features:

  • Karukera 2009 Single Cask 11 year old #L7 58.2%
  • Nine Leaves 2016 Single Cask 4 year old 66.6%
  • Savanna HERR 2006 SIngle Cask 12 year old #515 'Last HERR Cask'63.2%
