Description

The aged Barbadian component takes centre stage here, as the tropical aging of the rum, in once used American oak barrels, leaves a light dusting of wood on the finish. 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.

Introduced as the world`s first Afro-Caribbean rum, Equiano is co-created by Global Rum Ambassador Ian Burrell. 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. 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. 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. Named after Olaudah Equiano, an important figure and freedom fighter - 5% of the annual profits go to ground level equality projects.The initial sweetness quickly dries off leaving citrus peel, touches of vanilla, white pepper and sweet spices. ON THE NOSE
Like any quality premium rum, Equiano subtly delivers tropical warmth as soon as its aroma touches your nose.

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. ON THE NOSE
A harmonious balance of fresh sugarcane with hints of vanilla, dried light oak and touches of earthy, herbal notes normally associated with sugarcane juice rum.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. Like any quality premium barrel aged rum, Equiano subtly delivers tropical warmth as soon as its aroma touches your nose. The rum matures in a combination of ex-bourbon and ex-cognac casks to create its exceptional flavour. 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.

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. 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. There are two distilleries, Foursquare and Gray's Distillery, who make the rum, while the brand is owned and run by drinks marketeers Aaisha Dadral and Amanda Kakembo, Rum Ambassador Ian Burrel and more.

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. A rich and deep flavoured rum that has been made with no added sugar, no spice, no flavourings or colourings. brought these two rum purists together to create a 100% natural rum, with no spices or additives and no added sugar.

The expression is the world's first African and Caribbean rum blend, making it one of the most unique rums on the market. It resonates with each of us and demonstrates our belief and approach to making a difference in the world. The collaboration of two distilleries on two different continents creates something entirely new for a centuries old craft.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. 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. Once blended, the rum undergoes a second maturation in Spanish Oloroso casks, adding a huge depth of character. are on a mission to redefine a four-century-old industry by creating unique blends of rum from around the world. Equiano is a premium, limited batch aged rum, that is 100% natural, with no colorants, no flavourings, no spice or added sugar.
