Perhaps more famous for its aromatic bitters, Angostura Limited has been in the business of rum making through its production company, Trinidad Distillers Limited, since 1947. It ferments, distils, ages, blends and bottles alcoholic beverages, mainly rum, in Laventille, Trinidad, West Indies.
Starting with a French designed still made by Savalle capable of producing 5400 litres of alcohol/day, todayâ€™s production capacity is more than 65,000 litres of alcohol/day. There are ageing warehouses with a total capacity of 80,000 casks. It bottles more than 600, 000 cases of rum/year. Exports are mainly to the US, UK, Europe and the rest of the Caribbean.
Angostura's 15 Year Old "1787" rum refers to the date that the first sugar mill was established at the Lapeyrouse Estate on Trinidad.
