– House of Angostura Master Distiller, John Georges

21st November, 2013. Trinidad & Tobago -- Known for their iconic bitters and rum-making heritage, the House of Angostura - 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.

Blending rum is an art - acquired from years of experience. Angostura’s blenders have been trained on original traditions and are celebrated experts who closely maintain guarded formulas and techniques. All Angostura rums are aged in American oak casks that were once used for aging bourbon. As the rum ages - the interaction of the liquid and the oak results in a mellow well-balanced rum – a smoothness that is characteristic of Angostura’s blends.

“We have a deep appreciation for the tradition, philosophy and talents of the House of Angostura. We are always proud to distribute Angostura rums in our community and the launch of No. 1 takes it to the next level. Simply put, No. 1 is exceptional and perfectly expresses the joys of the craft,” says Genevieve Jodhan, executive manager international sales and marketing.

For this special bottling of No. 1, Angostura produced a unique recipe with mature, high-quality aged rums - selected with care and precision, each chosen for their unique flavour and characteristics. The result to the eye is a beautiful rich amber hue with superb clarity. The nose is rewarded with a complex bouquet balanced with delicate notes of freshly cut almonds, crisp green apple and a hint of caramel.
