About Angostura 1824 Premium RumIn 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. Siegert 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. Today they are one of the leading rum producers in the Caribbean, offering a wide range of the famous spirit. The House of Angostura is open about the value that they place on nature, and the tropical environment in the Caribbean community in which their award-winning brand is headquartered.
Angostura 1824 Premium Rum pays homage to the lively spirit of Dr. Siegart. Distilled in Trinidad and Tobago, it's a blend of 3 gold rums aged 6 to 17 years. The rum is aged 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. Bottled at 80 proof, it has rich banana and dried fruit notes.
