Port Mourant 1982 Velier

Velier was founded in Genoa in 1947 as a wine and spirits importer and distributor. They selected their first single cask whiskies in 1992, bottled for them by Signatory Vintage, and have gone on to become one of the most collectible brands in the industry. Luca Gargano's involvement with the company has also positioned them as the one of the foremost authorities and bottlers of collectible rum as well.

A very elegantly bottled 'Port Morant' rum, distilled in 1985. The Port Mourant distillery in Guyana stopped production in the 1950s, with its double wooden pot still moved to Uitvlugt who continued to produce rum in the same style. Uitvlugt is now also closed, but the Port Mourant still lives on to this day, in use at Guyana's only remaining distillery, Diamond.

Unlike other independent bottlers of the time (and some previous Velier bottlings) this was exclusively matured and bottled in Guyana, and was one of the bottles to set the precedent that Velier has become know for.
