Description

are on a mission to redefine a four-century-old industry by creating unique blends of rum from around the world. Introduction In the rugged, picturesque landscapes of the Cambrian Mountains near Aberystwyth, Wales offers tales steeped in myth and legend. On the 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. Equiano is a multi-award winning rum company; a collaboration between two unique distilleries on two different continents, marrying the best from both the Eastern and Western hemispheres, to bring something entirely new to a centuries old craft. The rolling hills of Wales are so rarely remembered, and yet they hold some of the most interesting history in all of the United Kingdom.

Equiano is a premium, limited batch aged rum, that is 100% natural, with no colorants, no flavourings, no spice or added sugar. 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. Introduced as the world`s first Afro-Caribbean rum, Equiano is co-created by Global Rum Ambassador Ian Burrell.If you are looking to break into the world of sipping rum, Doorly’s XO is the perfect place to start, as it is slightly softer and naturally sweeter than its siblings thanks to the sherry influence.

On the palate, it has a smooth and rich flavour, with notes of dark chocolate, dried fruit, and a slight spiciness. Equiano Rum is the delicious result of a collaboration between two distilleries, Barbados Foursquare and Gray's Distillery of Mauritius. A rich and deep flavoured rum that has been made with no added sugar, no spice, no flavourings or colourings.Also sign me up for newsletters so I can get special offers, recommendations, and expert advice to my inbox! 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.

The two rums are then blended and aged for an additional 6 months in ex-cognac casks, giving Equiano its distinct flavour profile. Refreshingly unique, Equiano Light is an exceptional blend of lightly aged molasses rum from the Caribbean, fused with fresh sugar cane juice rum from Africa. It resonates with each of us and demonstrates our belief and approach to making a difference in the world. These notes continue in the palate as well as hints of caramelised sugar and rich toffee before leading into the sweet medium finish with gentle liquorice tones appearing at the close. Named after Olaudah Equiano, a freedom fighter who liberated himself by selling rum, Equiano rum shares its valued with its namesakes and continues to work within communities across both continents.The rum from Foursquare is aged in American white oak, while the liquid from Gray's is aged in French limousin oak and Cognac casks. Named after freedom fighter Olaudah Equiano, The Equiano Rum Co donate 5% of company profits to ground-level freedom and equality projects annually. ON THE PALATE
The initial mouthfeel of this light rum is a medium sweet taste of ripe sugarcane, more tropical fruit and citrus peel, layered with green apples, pears and hints of vanilla and light oak on the palate.
