Habitation Velier Mount Gay 2011 Pure Single Rum

, , ,

Habitation Velier Mount Gay 2011 Pure Single Rum is part of the highly anticipated 2020 release from VELIER. In 2016 VELIER launched the Habitation Velier range, being the world’s only range of Pure Single Rums acting as a reference point to the type of rum produced by each distillery’s unique pot still.

The Habitation Velier Mount Gay 2011 Pure Single Rum is a unique release of Mount Gay rum by Habitation Velier. Between 2007-2014, the Ward family, who owned and operated the famous Mount Gay distillery for over a century, produced an experimental triple distilled spirit on their McMillan double retort pot stills. Velier obtained casks of this rare spirit after the distillery was sold in 2014 and have aged them in the tropics. This release uses six of those casks, creating an opportunity to try an experimental spirit from one of the oldest distilleries in the world.

The term ‘Pure Single Rum’ defines a rum from a single distillery, distilled exclusively in pot stills. Pot still rums are more complex and typically more suitable to long ageing. The vintage Pure Single Rums are entirely aged in the tropics, ensuring a natural, accelerated aging compared to European ageing, at the expense of higher angels share.
