Velier are an Italian Independent bottler. One of the few bottlers that focus on rum rather than Whisky. Velier have been setting the standards for independent bottlers since the 1990’s and led by the irrepressible Luca Gargano, they are showing no signs of slowing down.
You are probably wondering (like I was) about the strange name of this rum. Velier or rather Luca individually visits and selects specific casks from Demerara Distillers Limited (DDL). Then unlike many other independent bottlers the casks remain at DDL to benefit from Tropical ageing. The rum is then brought to England where it is bottled before being sold mostly to mainland Europe.
