Established in 1923 on the site of the old Caroni sugar factory with both column and pot stills, Caroni produced rums notable for a distinctive heavy profile which was supplied to the British Navy. Despite protests, in 2001 it was sold by the Trinidad government to Angostura, and it was then closed in 2002.
But wait, that was not the end of Caroni distillery! The winds of fate changed when, while visiting Trinidad in 2004, Luca Gargano learnt of a warehouse full of barrels of rums in the derelict distillery. The barrels were purchased, bottled and sold and are now frantically sought out by collectors - a phenomenon termed �Caronimania�.
This full-bodied rum is tropically aged for 12 years, and carries all the famous hallmarks of a classic Caroni.
