In the realm of rum aficionados and collectors, few series have attained the level of reverence and mystique that surrounds the Caroni Employees set by Velier. A monumental tribute to the heart and soul of the now-defunct Caroni Distillery in Trinidad, this ultra-collectible series of 16 different Caroni rums is a poetic marriage of flavor, history, and human touch. It not only immortalizes the rich, industrial flavors that define Caroni’s rums but also the people—ordinary yet extraordinary—who were the unsung heroes behind the legendary distillery.
Packaged in 16 individual bottles, each distinct from the other, the series is divided into six special releases. The artisanal craftsmanship extends from the contents to the packaging, with each bottle wrapped in a premium box that perfectly complements the rum it houses. However, what truly sets this collection apart is that each bottle and box is adorned with a photograph, name, and nickname of a real-life Caroni employee. From the mechanic and the distillation supervisor to the fork-lift driver and the blender, each honoree represents a facet of the intricate gem that was Caroni Distillery.
Velier, the Italian producer, elevates this series from a simple collector’s item to a heartfelt tribute. By featuring these employees on each bottle and box, the series becomes a living archive, honoring the everyday individuals who infused their skills and spirit into making Caroni rum what it was.
The Caroni Employees set is not merely a collection of rums; it’s a bottled anthology of lives, dreams, and hard work. Each sip is a toast to the community that made Caroni not just a distillery but a legend. Owning this set is not just an investment in rare, collectible rums—it’s a homage to the human essence that is so often forgotten in the stories of great establishments.
In every sense, the Caroni Employees set by Velier is iconic—a once-in-a-lifetime collection that captures the soul of a legendary distillery and the people who were its beating heart.
