A single-cask rum from Diamond distillery in Guyana, distilled in their Versailles Wooden Pot still. Aged for 18 years with a continental ageing, matured in an ex-bourbon barrel and finished in ex-oloroso sherry cask, this rum is a special bottle for any collection. The Versailles Still is one of only two of its kind left.The ancient still is over 250 years old and still produces a very unique style of rum similar to its humble origins at the Versailles estate: it incorporates a historic cylindrical wooden body a neck of copper swan. The combination of the interaction of native woods with alcoholic sugars and the reflux from the copper still results in a very heavy bodied distillate, ideal for creating their distinctive feature of robust, flavoured and aromatic Demerara rums.
