Description

The unique blend is created to celebrate the diversity of cultures that came together to make the rum possible.

The liquid has no added sugar, no colorants and no added spices, only original flavours that come from the barrels. A collaboration between two prestigious distilleries, this premium rum marries 1 1 year cognac cask rum from Gray's distillery in Mauritius, with 8 year bourbon cask rum from Foursquare in Barbados.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. It resonates with each of us and demonstrates our belief and approach to making a difference in the world.

Once blended, the rum undergoes a second maturation in Spanish Oloroso casks, adding a huge depth of character. 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. 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. 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. Equiano is a blend of 11 year aged ex-cognac cask rum from Gray's distillery in Mauritius, married with 8 year aged ex-bourbon cask rum from Foursquare in Barbados.Blended with rum from Africa and the Caribbean, aromas of vanilla and dried oak are complimented by pears, pink grapefruit and grassy notes on the palate. 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. 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 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.

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. 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. Equiano is a premium, limited batch aged rum, that is 100% natural, with no colorants, no flavourings, no spice or added sugar.

Made with collaboration between the very well respected Foursquare (from Barbados) and Gray's Distillery (from Mauritius). The two rums are then blended and aged for an additional 6 months in ex-cognac casks, giving Equiano its distinct flavour profile. On the nose: Like any quality premium rum, Equiano subtly delivers tropical warmth as soon as its aroma touches your nose. Equiano is a premium, limited batch aged rum, that is 100% natural, with no additives, no flavourings, no spice and certainly no added sugar.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 fabulous distilleries, marrying liquid from Barbados' Foursquare and Gray's Distillery of Mauritius.
