Velier Privateer 2017 Paradisetto Limited Edition

, , ,

Velier Privateer 2017 Paradisetto Limited Edition is part of the highly anticipated Villa Paradesitto 2020 release from VELIER.

This 2017 vintage American rum from Privateer was bottled in 2020 to commemorate Velier’s 32nd and final year at their offices in Villa Paradisetto. Bottled at barrel proof after 3 years of tropical maturation. This is one of six exclusive releases, each featuring a specially commissioned label by long-time collaborator, Warren Khong.

Privateer was founded in 2011 by Andrew Cabot, and the distillery is located in Boston, Massachusetts. Under the guidance of master distiller, Maggie Campbell (who has since left Privateer), the distillery has true emphasis on craft production. It uses only Grade A (also known as “Fancy”) US molasses, and for its white rum single origin molasses from one valley in Guatemala. The rum is double distilled, first in a thousand-gallon Vendome pot, then in a copper eau-de-vie still, a hybrid pot/column still with an adjustable plate configuration. It is then bottled in accordance with the Bottled in Bond Act of 1897, which was intended for American whiskey, but ensures the spirit blended is from one distillery and produced in a single distilling season. This transparent approach has won Privateer a loyal following of connoisseurs and collectors alike among its fans.
