"Our rums are 100% Trinidadian, made in one distillery on one Island. Much like a single malt only better"
- John Georges, Angostura Master Distiller.
Angostura® 1919 is a specially blended multiple award winning rum, which celebrates a very particular date in the development of the rum industry in Trinidad & Tobago, as well as the Caribbean.
After a fire in 1932, which destroyed the Government Rum Bond, the master blender of Fernandes Distillers, J.B. Fernandes, bought the charred casks, only to discover they had been filled in the year 1919.
The prized rum was skillfully blended and called "1919 Aged Rum."
