Mezan Guyana 1998 Bottling Note
This was distilled at the Uitvlugt distillery in Guyana in 1998, and it was aged in small oak barriques before it was bottled by Mezan. Guyana has had a pretty epic history of rum distillation, and during the 17th century, there were over 200 distilleries on the island. After the 1970s, (shortly after Guyana gained independence), just three remained, and they were Diamond, Enmore and Uitvlugt. The latter two have closed (Enmore in 1993, and Uitvlugt in 2000).
