Enmore Victoria Amazonica is third rum from Distilia’s exclusive Floral Rum Series. It was born as a child of cooperation of the Distilia and Catawiki, which years of expertise resulted in a true masterpiece sealed in a bottle.
Victoria Amazonica is an exquisite flower which can only be found in the deepest parts of the Amazon rainforest, unique botanic gardens and the most distinguished estates. It is the queen of the flower kingdom. Its large circular leaves, which span over 2.5 meters across, can hold the weight of a small child. Victoria has always fascinated people to such a degree that it was named to be the national flower of Guayana, the country where this superb rum was born.
Allow us to say it was not easy to find a drink that could be named after the queen’s lily, but luckily we were able to succeed. And just like it is hard to compare Victoria Amazonica to any other flower, this 28-year-old Enmore cannot be compared to any other rum you have tasted before. Ladies and Gentlemen, please meet the queen – Victoria Amazonica Enmore 28YO.
It is a limited release consisting of only 193 bottles of exquisite design. It is available only over Catawiki’s platform over a series of dedicated auctions. The project is Distilia’s third bottling prepared exclusively for Catawiki. It is also the third of the Floral Rum Series.

This is a ‘REV’, so ‘Rum Enmore Versailles’, so from that famous wooden pot still when it was still at Enmore. I can’t quite see what could go wrong this time… Colour: office coffee as in Netflix episodes taking place at NYPD. Nose: these Versailles are everything. Sublime pines (Douglas), old books, really old pinot noir and deep-smoked bacon. With water: bicycle inner tubes, firwood ashes, black cigars (maduro), raw high-cocoa chocolate, coffee beans, touch of camphor and eucalyptus. Mouth (neat): fig jam, smoked, plus cedarwood and Corinth raisins. Exceptional. With water: a tiny tad ‘too much’ now, with a wood that clearly took over, but there is an easy solution, just don’t add any water and you’ll be fine. Finish: very long, perfect when neat. Cancel water. Stunning salty liquorice, provided you like that. Comments: a little extreme, perhaps, but as long as you do not add any water, you’re on Mount Olympus, reigning over the world. Well, more or less. SGP:472
