The Caroni Navy Rum Replica Extra Strong 90 Proof 100th Anniverary is a special Caroni rum bottled by Velier marking the 100th birthday of the closed Caroni distillery. Founded in 1923, in the heart of the Caroniís sugarcane plantations, this famed Trinidad distillery was renowned throughout the world for producing one of the very best Heavy Rums, receiving high praise from the British Navy. In 2003, with the closing of the nearby state-owned sugar refinery, Trinidad sugarcane production ceased and the distillery was inevitably shut down shortly after.
