The idea of aging Xyauyù in rum barrels 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.
