Bottled in 2014 after 14 years of maturation, this Diamond, somewhere between a fruit liqueur and a rum, boasts a unique level of concentration. As the tasting unfolds, wild fruits and spices pair wonderfully with the molasses that serves as the canvas for this masterpiece.
Profile: elegant with fruit (blackcurrant, quince, apricot) and spices (coffee, cocoa, musk).

- Appearance : coppery amber
- Nose : with surprising wild fruit (blackcurrant, blueberry), it quickly develops into notes of fruit jelly (quince, prune). In the background, port and spicy bread enthral the senses.
- Palate : Roasted coffee follows cocoa before fruit takes over with finesse (candied orange, pomegranate, dried apricot). It is then joined by spices (musk, candied ginger). A rich, concentrated palate where the fruit and spices are little by little dusted in toasted notes (coffee, chocolate and leather).
- Overall : consistent with the palate. Generous, deep and full of life. Candied apricot and blackcurrant combine perfectly with balsamic notes (pine, cedar, sherry), creating true homogeneity. So enjoyable we wish it lasted longer.
- The brand
The Velier company was founded by the Chaix family in 1947. From 1953 to 1983, this small traditional company, located in the port of Gênes, specialised in the importation and distribution of wines, champagnes and spirits. In 1983, then aged 25, Luca Gargano acquired shares in Velier. Under his influence the company began specialising in the importation of exceptional spirits to be supplied to the most prestigious establishments in Italy. In the early 1990s, Luca Gargano heard rumours of a mythical, quasi-legendary stock of St James Rum that had supposedly been distilled at the end of the 19th century. Eventually he discovered proof that this stock, distilled in 1885 and bottled in 1952, did indeed exist. And in 1991, following lengthy discussions, Luca finally managed to acquire the entirety of this stock, which he then released on the Italian market. These selections of rums have since multiplied and led to the birth of exceptional ranges.
