Product description

Established in 1923 on the site of the sugar factory for which it was named, Caroni was a key ingredient of British Navy rations, where it's famous high ester 'Heavy' rums help to make up the signature flavour. Sadly, with the decline of the Trinidadian sugar industry, the Islands distillers became more and more dependent upon imported molasses, making distilling less and less economical. The writing then, was already on the wall when in 2001 the Trinidadian government sold a 49% share in the holding company to Angostura. Caroni was shuttered in 2002 and a Behemoth of flavour was lost to the world.
Thankfully, in 2004, Luca Gargano discovered the ossuary of Caroni's warehouses filled of barrels of the legendary heavy rum quietly ageing. Since then we have seen a number of outstanding releases with collectors and drinkers alike seeking to acquire one of these coveted relics.
A special 2018 release of Caroni extra strong Navy Rum, a collaborative bottling between Velier and La Maison du Whisky (a.k.a. La Maison & Velier). The rum was aged 18 years in Trinidad.
The bottle celebrates the 100th anniversary of the distillery, which closed in 2002.
The packaging is a loving reproduction of the old 1940s bottles, which were imported in into the UK by sugar merchants, Lyle & Tate.
