Trinidad & Tobago -- Known for their iconic bitters and rum-making heritage, the House of Angostura (www.angosturarum.com) - the only rum distillery in Trinidad today - announces No. 1 as the first premium rum in a new limited-edition range aged in special casks, aptly named, The Cask Collection. Bottled at 40%, No. 1 is smooth and well-rounded with a lasting array of woody notes reminiscent of dry, warm nights in the Caribbean islands. Only 9,600 bottles will be available in select markets worldwide.
Angostura No.1 is a testament to Don Carlos Siegert, son of the brand’s founder, who dreamt of making the “smoothest blend in the new world.” No. 1 is the combination of a carefully blended selection of aged rums, aged eight to ten years, that are then left to marry for 12 months in First Fill Bourbon Casks. This artistic approach results in a well-rounded blend, where each rum contributes to the finished flavour profile, without any one dominating.
