    An indie release that rum purists will be pleased to get their hands on is this exceptionally old Enmore. Distilled in 1990 and bottled in 2017 as part of Cadenhead’s 175th Anniversary celebrations, it was limited to one bottle per customer at Cadenhead's stores in the UK, so as you'd expect, there's very little to go around for Australian rum lovers. As an original distillery bottling it's quite collectable.

    The 'MEV' marque stands for 'Main Enmore Versailles'. According to one source, "Many of the 1990 Enmores wear this mark, which suggests that the Main Rum Company probably imported or bought a lot of rum at that time." As the marque suggests, this was distilled using the Versailles Single Wooden Pot Still, located at the Enmore Distillery at the time of distillation in 1990 (the still was moved to the Uitvlugt Distillery in 1995 and subsequently to the Diamond Distillery in 1999). The rum was shipped to Europe for maturation by Cadenheads. Very limited stocks. 57.2% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered.
