Muller LL IV/3177 Habitation Velier White Rum 2015

Velier was founded by Casimir Chaix in Genoa in 1947 as a wine and spirits importer and distributor. By the 1980s they were still a small family-company with less than ten staff. This all changed in 1986 when it was purchased by Luca Gargano, a former brand ambassador for Saint James who was at the time still in his twenties. Under his direction, they selected their first single cask whiskies in 1992, and their first rum in 1996. In the decades that followed, Velier have gone on to become one of the most collectible brands in the industry, and Gargano has positioned them as the one of the foremost authorities and bottlers of rum anywhere in the world.

More than just a bottler of rum, Luca Gargano is considered a visionary in the cane spirits industry, even developing his own classification for different styles of rum in 2015. Many distilleries have since adopted this. Among the classifications is "pure single rum," which denotes a spirit produced on pot stills at a single distillery. This Habitation Velier range is a celebration of these rums "which best expresses the raw material and the know-how of the distiller."

This was distilled on the bespoke Andreas Muller bain-marie copper pot still, specially installed at the Bielle distillery in Marie Galante, Guadeloupe, for production of PMG's Rhum Rhum brand. Muller LL IV/3177 is the identification number for this still.

Bottled at 59% ABV, the traditional proof for Marie Galante rums.
