Velier Royal Navy Tiger Shark Rum is a rare pure vatted navy style rum bottling from Velier. The second release of the Velier Royal Navy, Tiger Shark Rum is the result of the forty-year experience of Luca Gargano, owner of Velier and renowned rum guardian and advocate.
Velier represents one of the biggest and most relevant realities in the Italian distribution and importation of distillates, especially whiskies and rums. It was founded in 1947 by Casimiro Chaix who, at the time, worked in the French Consulate in Genoa. From 1953 to 1983, this small family company specialized in the import and distribution of wines, champagne and liqueurs, exploiting the potential of the port of the Ligurian capital.
In 1983, at the age of 25, Luca Gargano acquired some Velier shares and under his influence the company began to specialize in the importation of exceptional distillates such as the legendary stock of St James Rum distilled in 1885 discovered by Luca in 1991. Since then these selections of rum have multiplied and led to the emergence of exceptional ranges
