Rum, Trinidad & Tobago, 70cl, Ref: 16008
A commemoration of the long history of Angostura, this is a 12 year-old expression. Bottled by hand, this rum is exceptionally smooth and very rich. With a hint of smoke on the nose and a surprising complexity, it is worthy of the renown enjoyed by this famous brand.

- The brand
Angostura, know primarily for its cocktail bitters, originates from Trinidad & Tobago and also produces several well-known rums. Founded around 1830 by Dr. Siegart in Venezuela, it was his son and brother who set up the company on the islands in 1876. In 1936 they began to produce their own alcohol to provide the basis for bitters, creating its first rums at the same time. Distilled in column stills, from molasses, Angostura rums are actually a blend of alcohol varying from 70 to 95% alcohol content, of which one part is also sold to blenders in the neighbouring islands.
