About Angostura 1824 12 Year Old Hand Casked Premium Rum

In 1824, Dr. Johann Siegart, a German doctor serving as Surgeon-General of Simon Bolivar's army in Venezuela, was working to find a medicine that would enhance the appetite and digestive well-being of his soldiers. Dr. Siegart eventually settled upon a mix of herbs and spices that he called “Amargo Aromatico” — today, this world-famous concoction is known simply as Angostura Bitters.

Building on his early success, Dr. Siegart established the House of Angostura in the eponymous Venezuelan city, where he began to manufacture his bitters on a grander scale (the business would later become the sole purveyor of bitters to the King of Prussia, Spain and King George V). As he continued to expand, Dr. Siegart, along with his younger brother and his son, moved the House of Angostura to Port of Spain, Trinidad in 1876 and began producing rum.

Angostura 1824 12 Year Old Hand Casked Premium Rum pays homage to the lively spirit of Dr. Siegart. Distilled from molasses, the rum is aged for a minimum of twelve years in charred, American oak barrels that previously contained bourbon. Only the finest barrels, hand-selected by the House of Angostura’s Master Blender, go into Angostura 1824.

As a result, the rum has an aroma of dried tropical fruits, candied nuts and tobacco which leads to a bold palate filled with leather, oak, coffee beans, chocolate and a slight citrus zest. The finish is dry and warming, with hints of strawberry jam and caramel complementing the chocolate.

A recent Gold Medal winner at the Rum Masters (2013 and 2014), this is a rum you’re sure to enjoy. Pick up a bottle today!

About Rum

Rum history allegedly started in the Carribiens in the 17th century when they started to ferment and distill molasses, a byproduct of sugar production. Most of the Rum is aged in oak or ex-wine casks, giving its color and flavor.
