Port Mourant PM 1993 Velier 13 Year Old
One of a series of legendary bottlings from the brief but beautiful period (2004-2015) when Velier owned a small stake in Demerara Distillers Ltd (DDL), which afforded Luca Gargano privileged access the warehouses and his pick of casks to bottle. Sadly "The Age of Velier Demerara" has passed but the memory of it lives on, encased in glass.
A 1993 vintage demerara rum from the Port Morant double wooden pot still in Guyana. The Port Morant distillery closed in the 1950s, so this would have been produced at Uitvlugt, where the still was moved to (via Albion). Well travelled, the Port Morant still now operates at Diamond since the Uitvlugt closure in 2000.
Bottled from a stock of 10 barrels.
One of 2,994 bottles.
