Silver Seal 'Dennery' St Lucian Rum
Silver Seal was founded by Ernesto Mainardi in 2000. This was Mainardi's second bottling company after the esteemed Sestane in 1979. Both companies were sold to Massimo Righi, proprietor of Whisky Antique, in 2010. Since then the company has produced a steady stream of high quality rum to add to its sought after back-catalogue.
This is an example of the said back catalogue, distilled in St Lucia. Confusingly, this is named for the old Dennery distillery which closed in 1973, and the general consensus is that the liquid is not that old and therefore cannot be from Dennery. The only active distillery in the country is St. Lucia Distillers.
