Created in 2015 by Luca Gargano and some of the best rum distillers of the caribbeans, the Habitation Velier range might also have been christened ‘essence of rum’ it only bottles Pure Single Rums. Only pot stills made rums can enjoy the title. This version by the Jamaican distillery Hampden and bottled at cask strength begins by taking us on a journey deep into the heart of a gorgeously oxidative and interactive aromatic palette, before leading us on to meander through a warm, heady, exotic, luscious gustatory palette that abounds with life.

Profile: the initial nose is rich and characterised by notes of cider before turning spicy and floral. This floral character provides a starting point for the particularly aromatic (lime blossom, vervain) and exotic palate. The finish boasts a salinity that lengthens and refreshes the overall effect.

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : burnished gold with glints of topaz.
  • Nose : rich, unctuous. Particularly oxidative, the initial nose is characterised by notes of fermenting apple juice. Upon airing, spices and peppers (Cayenne) mingle with Bourbon vanilla and almonds. It then becomes progressively more herbaceous (tobacco, gentian), floral (iris) and resinous (cedar, pine).
  • Palate : full-bodied, circular. Heady florals surround an attack on the palate that is firm and assertive, piercing deep into the deepest core of the gustatory palette. Noble notes of tobacco, ground spices, cocoa and aromatic herbs (lime blossom, vervain) enrich a rich and complex mid-palate. It then becomes rooty (gentian, ginger) and almost earthy. The back of the palate is exotic and heady (geranium, hyacinth).
  • Overall : long, intensified. It immediately unveils its warm, slightly saline nature, boasting a prominent luscious and incorrigibly vibrant side. Cyclamen, bougainvillea and geranium blossoms literally perfume the finish. The retronasal olfaction retains this floral impression long afterwards, before taking a turn for the fruitier (mango, apricot). The empty glass is a true ode to sugar cane.
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.

The line

Ce projet est né de la collaboration entre Luca Gargano, propriétaire et président de la maison Velier et les meilleurs distillateurs de rhums utilisant des alambics pot still, donnant ainsi naissance au Pure Single Rum, une catégorie d’excellence. Encore peu connus, ils sont l’expression la plus pure de la canne à sucre et de ses dérivés (mélasse). Riches en arômes, forts en degrés, les rhums blancs Pure Single Rum représentent une nouvelle génération de spiritueux pour les passionnés. Les rhums vieux quant à eux incarnent la quintessence de l’interaction entre le bois et la complexité de la distillation discontinue.
