Angostura to introduce new sipping rum in UK


Angostura Rum 1787

Angostura is to expand its range of rums in the UK with the launch of Angostura 1787, made with a blend of rums aged for 15 years.

Distributed in the UK by Cellar Trends, it is a sipping rum created to celebrate the establishment of the first sugar mill in Trinidad in 1787 at the Lapeyrouse sugar plantation.

It is made from reserve rums from the House of Angostura’s vast ageing warehouses, each of which has been maturing for 15 years in charred oak barrels.

After being previewed at Cardiff Rum Festival and London Cocktail Week last week, Angostura 1787 will be available in the UK from November. It will also be showcased at RumFest in London on October 22 and 23.

It is presented in a weighty, rounded bottle with a thick glass base, emblazoned with the signature of Dr JGB Seigert, the founder of Angostura, and available in a brown and orange gift box.

Tasting notes from House of Angostura
With a rich mahogany colour and hints of bronze, Angostura 1787 is medium-bodied with a bouquet of banana, dried fruit and oak, with top notes of apple. Its taste carries a hint of dried plums and sweet rounded oak notes entwined with toffee nuances, with a long, crisp finish.
