By the turn of the century Angostura had ventured into the rum market, at first just in bottling bulk rum from other distillers. After years of intensive research into fermentation and distillation processes, the Company installed a state-of-the-art distillery in 1945 heralding its entry into the production of rum on a major scale.
By the end of 1960, the Company had extended distribution of its products to over 140 countries across the world, becoming well known internationally for its high quality rums in addition to the now world famous Angostura aromatic bitters.
Production Note: This is a marvelous anejo (aged) rum made from a blend of light and heavy molasses-based rums aged for a minimum of 8 years in charred American oak bourbon barrels.
Colour: Angostura 1919 rum possesses a rich, golden-amber hue with excellent clarity.
Aroma: The rum exudes a complex bouquet brimming over with aromas of cocoa, molasses, caramel and vanilla.
Palate: It is remarkable soft and well rounded as the rum glides over the plate without a hint of harshness or biting edge. Within moments it opens up, revealing a generous and long-lasting array of toasty flavours.
