Caroni Rum

The Caroni Distillery, located at Caroni, Trinidad, was established in 1918 on the sugar estate of the same name. It produced a range of rums until 2003, on a number of different stills, but was most famous for its column still production of which this 1997 bottling is a fine example.

The extract and weight of flavour allowed it to mature for many years in ex-Bourbon wood in the tropical heat, developing a distinctive style which was most sought after, and for which the company was rightly famous.

A full chestnut brown colour leads to a nose of fruit combined with restrained oak and spice on the palate, these elements continue with well controlled spirit, leading to a long and well integrated finish. The distillery is now closed and supplies of rum (of this quality) are disappearing quickly. Priced at 50% of RRP, Livery members have a chance of drinking history, supplied are limited, so order now!

Master’s Cask

The first ever “Master’s Cask” of Single Malt Scotch Whisky has just been bottled. The Single Cask Single Malt from Caol Ila Distillery is not only the first bottling to bear the Distillers’ “Master’s Cask” label, but it contains a unique “un-peated” malt from the Islay distillery, dramatically sited by the Jura seaway. Bottled at natural cask strength of 53.3% vol and with no chill filtration, cask number 449 was distilled on 14 September 1997 and bottled on 30 May 2016, making it 18 years old. 200 bottles of this very rare, unique and highly collectable malt whisky are being made available to all Liverymen, and given its special provenance it will be in great demand, so we urge you to move fast to secure this important part of our Distillers’ history. We sincerely thank our friends at Diageo for kindly donating this cask and to Kenny MacKay at Morrison & MacKay for bottling it for us. Proceeds from sales will significantly increase the Distillers’ Charity fund, so please enjoy a dram and support us.
