Xyauyù Barrel has a deep ruby, clear color and has no head. Its scents are reminiscent of vanilla and caramel, and are accompanied by smooth notes of wood, raisins and almonds.
While sipping it, the tastes of caramel, vanilla and fruit in syrup emerge. They blend harmoniously with the typical warmth of this barley wine with surprising notes of the best rums, in whose disused barrels Xyayù Barrel is aged.

The idea of aging Xyauyù in rum bottles first came about in 2012. Teo contacts his friend Luca Gargano from Velier who, in 2004, on one of his research trips, came across a distillery in Trinidad: the legendary Caroni, which had been shut down the previous year but still had a valuable stock of hundreds of barrels.
He decides to buy them and bring their precious contents to Europe. The story of this beer begins with the empty Caroni barrels, and the aromas of this wonderful distillate. In 2010 Teo develops a special Xyauyù Barrel Caroni label, and sells it exclusively to Velier to thank them for the valuable cooperation
