Last Ward 2009 Barbados Habitation Velier Rum

In 2007, Frank Ward, a member of the family that owned the Mount Gay Distillery for over 100 years, began producing Mount Gilboa, triple distilling it in McMillan pot stills, and aging in ex-Bourbon barrels. Velier bought these barrels after the distillery was sold by the Ward family in 2014. This edition is the result of the last 2009's 18 barrels bottling. Bottled after 9 years of aging in 2018, at a barrel proof 59% ABV. Over 64% angel share, distilled from estate molasses in a double retort pot still at Rum Refinery of Mount Gay in St Lucy Barbados. Sugar free and with no coloring additives.

The Habitation Velier line is dedicated to single rums, as classified by the Gargano system, rums distilled 100% from a unique pot still.
