Diamond SVW & < S > 1999 Velier 15 Year Old 2 x 70cl

Two 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. 

Due to the consolidation of the various Distilleries in Guyana and the relocation of a number stills from across the nation (specifically from Enmore and Uitvlugt) into the DDL Diamond Distillery complex, referring to a rum as Diamond is a somewhat confusing proposition.

These Velier bottling however were distilled in the metal coffey still that can be considered to be the original Diamond stills, and bear the cask marks SVW and <S> respectively.

Distilled in the Diamond metal Coffey still in 1996 and bottled 2014.

The five SVW barrels #7080-84 and four <S> barrels were hand selected by Luca Gargano.

Shipping on this lot will be charged for two bottles.
