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, today’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 Cask Collection No.1 is a 16 year old rum which was allowed to age for 10 years in American oak casks before being transferred over to once-used French oak casks that previously held Cognac for the final 6 years.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Elegantly nutty, with macadamia nut notes bringing vanilla elements to the fore. This is paired with white peach and floral citrus.

Palate: Citrus is dialled down here, but it remains fruity with fig and raisin. Still quite nutty, though.

Finish: Satisfyingly drying with lasting dried fruit touches.

Please note: Vintages may vary. If you require a specific vintage please contact us in advance to check.
