One of a series of legendary bottlings from the short but beautiful period (2004-2015) when Velier owned a small stake in Demerara Distillers Ltd (DDL), which offered Luca Gargano privileged access to the historic cellars and consequently his selection of barrels to bottle in grandiose condition.

The Skeldon plantation closed in 1960 and unlike some of the other distilleries closed at that time, its stills have not survived. The production of the style associated with the distillery, however, did it, in Uitvlugt. The distillery's four-column Savalle column is incredibly versatile, producing nine different brands today, of which the Skeldon "SWR" continues to be one. Following the closure of Uitvlugt in 2000, its stills and barrels were transferred to the Diamond distillery. Among them were the 2 barrels that contributed to this rum. These were discovered by Gargano, and after spending 27 years maturing in a tropical climate, they were immediately bottled for fear of further evaporation, or as we like to call it, Angels' Share. This is one of only 688 bottles.
