Rum Papalin Finest Blend

This was the first blended rum ever produced by Italian imported Velier. While awaiting the delivery of their 2012 stock of 12 year old Caroni to be bottled in Scotland, the company decided to create a blend using some of their existing Caroni stock and several other old Cuban and Venezuelan rums from their warehouse. The blend was allowed to rest for a year and eventually bottled in November 2013.

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.
