Caroni 2000 Rum
In 1923 the Caroni plain’s sugarcane plantation and distillery were founded in Trinidad. In 2003, when the islands sugarcane refinery and production was shuttered by the government, the distillery subsequently was forced to close the same year. Two years later La Maison and Velier, a company that bottles rare spirits, purchased all of the remaining stock at the Caroni facility. The rums for this product were distilled in 2000 using a double column still and a copper pot still and aged in oak. In 2017 this rum was developed using a stock of seven barrels that was blended to 55% ABV, creating 2700 bottles total to be released worldwide.
