Description

I received a sample of this rum in this year's (2021) MoM Advent calendar and thus far (17 days in) it has been one of the highlights. With no added sugar, no colorants, and no spice, expect flavours that come only from the barrel, with rich notes of dried fruits, natural sweet notes with a medium finish. Equiano Rum is a never seen before blend of two cultures, two distilleries and two islands, making it a perfect collaboration of east and west.

Once blended, the rum undergoes a second maturation in Spanish Oloroso casks, adding a huge depth of character.

This expression blends molasses rum from the Caribbean with sugar cane juice rum from Africa to create this one-of-a-kind dram. Equiano Rum is the world's first African and Caribbean blend, making it a truly stand-out product on the market.Equiano is a premium, limited batch aged rum, that is 100% natural, with no additives, no flavourings, no spice and certainly no added sugar. Continuing to celebrate the legacy of Olaudah Equiano, Equiano Light is inspired by the theme of enlightenment, a period where his acclaimed memoirs, ' The Interesting Narrative of Olaudah Equiano', played a pivotal role in shaping positive change. Equiano Rum is the delicious result of a collaboration between two fabulous distilleries, marrying liquid from Barbados' Foursquare and Gray's Distillery of Mauritius. Equality and diversity run deep in their business and set up the Equiano Foundation whose sole purpose is to fund and support ground level freedom and equality projects annually. Although Equiano is a naturally sweet rum with no added sugar or spices, it has a medium to sweet ending with touches of oak, anise, sweet pepper with a hint of bitter orange peel.

The unique blend is created to celebrate the diversity of cultures that came together to make the rum possible.year French Limousin oak ex-Cognac cask rum from Gray's distillery in Mauritius is blended with 8 year American oak ex-bourbon cask rum from Foursquare in Barbados. We'll send them to be recycled and you'll save paper, carbon emissions and time at the recycling centre! The collaboration of two distilleries on two different continents creates something entirely new for a centuries old craft.

Equiano starts its journey at Gray's distillery in Mauritius, where fresh molasses is barrelled for 10 years in a combination of French Limousin Oak and Cognac casks, giving the liquid complexity and depth of flavour. Aged for a minimum of eight years and carefully cultivated in two different yet distinct tropical climates means Equiano matures at a far faster rate than many other dark spirits, delivering a liquid that is like no other. 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. A multi-award-winning premium aged rum, Equiano Rum is made by two distilleries in two continents, bringing the flavours each together for something truly unique. What's more, the spirit is named after Olaudah Equiano, a freedom fighter who played a pivotal part in the abolition movement, and the folks behind Equiano Rum donate 5% of the annual profits to ground level equality projects each year.Other non-essential cookies are used to track visits anonymously and collect information for making reports. On the palate, it has a smooth and rich flavour, with notes of dark chocolate, dried fruit, and a slight spiciness. Rich, notes of dried fruits such as raisins and sultanas combine with sweet toffee, butterscotch and caramel culminating with a suggestion of orange peel, vanilla and buttered wood. There is a bright fruit character to the palate, supported by hints of liquorice, which is well-rounded and lingers on the finish.

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 liquid has no added sugar, no colorants and no added spices, only original flavours that come from the barrels. Introduced as the world`s first Afro-Caribbean rum, Equiano is co-created by Global Rum Ambassador Ian Burrell.The liquid is a limited batch blend from one of the best emerging distilleries in the world, Gray’s in Mauritius, and the world-renowned Barbadian distillery: Foursquare.
