- The brand
Mount Gay rum is without a doubt one of the oldest rums in the world. Officially established in 1703 in Barbados, the birthplace of rum, production most likely began around 1663. Still created using traditional methods, today these rums enjoy an excellent international reputation, as can be seen with Eclipse, which has been its flagship expression since 1910. The secret to their indisputable quality, a subtle combination of character and seduction, is the great care taken over its production and maturation. Its rums have won numerous medals at international competitions, with Extra Old enjoying particular success.
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 lineHabitation Velier est le fruit d’un long travail de recherche et d’éducation sur le rhum au cours des dernières décennies, joignant l’expérience de Velier au savoir-faire des meilleurs producteurs de rhum. Cette gamme de rhums blancs reprend les codes chers à la marque à savoir changer la perception des choses, de l’importance du vieillissement à l’importance de la distillation en pot still. Le but de la gamme Habitation Velier est principalement didactique : montrer les distillations artisanales aux différents marchés afin qu’ils comprennent la véritable phase décisive qui influence le style et la qualité.
