Distilled in 1975 at Uitvlugt distillery on the legendary double wooden pot still transferred from Port Mourant upon its closure, aged 37 years and bottled by Silver Seal from selected cask no.50.
This is one of only 139 bottles.
Port Mourant Sugar Estate was born as a cotton plantation and no precise news has arrived to us. According to Demerara Distillers Ltd it was founded in 1732 on the banks of Demerara River, even though no source mentions this name before 1813.
Its over 250 years old legendary Double Wooden Pot Still, is one of only two original wooden pot stills in the world.
Due to missing information, there is no precise closing date. Port Mourant distillery operated till the 1950s and its precious still brought to Albion. After its closure in the late 1960s, they were transferred at Uitvlugt where they operated till 2000. Uitvlugt was closed as well and the stills moved to Diamond, the last distillery in the country and property of the Government of Guyana.
Its precious stills are still operating and are part of the legendary ‘Heritage Stills’, jealously guarded at Demerara Distillers Ltd.
Silver Seal was founded by Ernesto Rino Mainardi in 2000, also owner of Sestante, well-known Italian indie bottler, who bottled his first whisky in 1985 and many others become legendary over the years. Max Righi, owner of whisky antique and one of the leading italian experts in the industry, bought both companies in 2010 and since then, also many outstanding rums were bottled.
