Uitvlugt 1998 Moon Import Sherry Wood

An independent bottling of Demerara rum from Moon Import.

Moon Import was founded by Pepi Mongiardino in 1980 and he bottled his first whisky in 1982. Always beautifully labelled, Pepi is acclaimed for designing the packaging for Moon Import bottles himself, often using images found in old books. These iconic designs, coupled with the quality of the liquid saw Moon Import steadily grow in popularity. The company is still going strong, and their early releases are some of the brightest gems in any whisky collection.

Distilled in 1998 in Guyana at Uitvlugt distillery, and bottled 13 years after its closure in 2013. Diamond is now the only distillery left in the country, but many of the stills from Uitvlugt were moved there.

This was bottled in the UK from sherry casks #33, #73, #98 and #94.

Bottle number 417 of 1157.

The label style used here in an homage to Mongiardino's inaugural "Half Moon" series.
