Equiano Original Rum
Equiano is a multi award winning premium aged rum that is the world’s first African & Caribbean blend. The collaboration of two distilleries on two different continents creates something entirely new for a centuries old craft. Equiano is 100% natural, with no spices, no additives and no added sugar. All of the rich and deep flavours come from the ex-bourbon and ex-cognac casks that it tropically matures in.
Equiano subtly delivers tropical warmth as soon as its aroma touches your nose. 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. It has a warm toffee and butterscotch mouth-feel, with chewy raisins and brown sugar flavours that emerge from the liquid as it caresses your tongue.
Although there are 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. Bottled at 43% abv.
