Caroni 18 Year Old A.D. Rattray​ 12 x 70cl

Established in 1923 on the site of the sugar factory for which it was named, Caroni was a key ingredient of British Navy rations, where it's famous high ester 'Heavy' rums help to make up the signature flavour. Sadly, with the decline of the Trinidadian sugar industry, the island's distillers became more and more dependent upon imported molasses, making distilling less economical. The writing then, was already on the wall when in 2001 the Trinidadian government sold a 49% share in the holding company to Angostura. Caroni was shuttered in 2002 and a Behemoth of flavour was lost to the world.

Twelve bottles of 18 year old single barrel Trinidad Rum from the closed Caroni distillery.

Bottled by A.D. Rattray.

Shipping will be charged at 12 bottles on this lot.
