Equiano rum is a premium blend of aged rums from Barbados and Mauritius, named after Olaudah Equiano, a prominent African writer and abolitionist. The unique blend is created to celebrate the diversity of cultures that came together to make the rum possible.
The Barbados rum is from Foursquare distillery and is aged for 8 years in ex-bourbon casks, while the Mauritian rum is from Gray’s distillery and is aged for 2 years in French oak casks. The two rums are then blended and aged for an additional 6 months in ex-cognac casks, giving Equiano its distinct flavour profile.
The nose of the rum is filled with aromas of vanilla, toffee, and butterscotch, with a hint of oak. On the palate, it has a smooth and rich flavour, with notes of dark chocolate, dried fruit, and a slight spiciness. The finish is long and warming, with a sweet and smoky aftertaste.
Equiano is not only a delicious rum, but also a socially responsible one. The company is committed to supporting ethical and sustainable practices in the production of their rum, and a portion of their profits goes towards supporting social justice causes.
Overall, Equiano rum is a premium and socially conscious choice for rum enthusiasts. Its unique blend of rums from different cultures and aging processes gives it a depth of flavour that is hard to find in other rums.
