About the distillery

Located in the heart of the Caroni plains’ sugar cane plantations, Caroni was established in 1918 as a single estate distillery and possessed its own sugar plant that supplied it with local sugar cane. Equipped with both column and pot stills, it made heavy rums with a distinctive, singular style.

It was only by chance in 2004, when the Italian raconteur Luca Gargano visited Trinidad for a photo shoot that he passed by the boarded up distillery and learnt of its fate and the location of a warehouse full of barrels of its rums. Luca couldn’t believe his luck! Over the next few years the barrels were purchased, its contents bottled and went on sale.

Other Information

Distilled in 2000 and aged in Trinidad in a single cask until 2017 before being bottled at 70.4% for The Whisky Exchange.

One of only 238 bottles

Consumer protection laws do not apply to purchases from private sellers.  More specifically, the right to reject (section 20 of the Consumer Rights Act) does not apply.  Buyer's rights are significantly reduced when a sale is carried out between two individuals.  Goods from private sellers do not have to be fault-free and if defects or marks were clearly mentioned in our description and lot photos, then you do not have a case against the seller.  However, if the seller's goods do not match the description, you have the right to ask for a refund on return of the goods to us.

 

Please ensure that you undertake close up viewing/inspection prior to placing any bid.  If you are not satisfied with the photos, or if you have questions beyond the offered description and images, please click "ask a question" to make specific enquiries or to receive a more in-depth condition report.  Lots will be sold as seen and described.  

 

Insurance against breakage or loss during transit is available at checkout at a cost of 3.5% of the hammer price.

 

Due to the various ages of bottles and their seals, condition of liquid is at the buyer's discretion and no claim can be lodged against leakage in transit.
