Port Mourant UPM 1997 Velier 15 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.
This particular 1997 vintage which was produced at the Uitvlugt distillery on the historic Port Mourant double wooden pot still. It is one of 1094 bottles drawn from a stock of 4 barrels marked UPM.
