Global rum and bitters brand, The House Of Angostura has released a rare, ultra-premium rum expression, under the name Angostura Zenith.
Aged in charred American oak casks that were once used for bourbon, the expression is derived from two of Trinidad and Tobago’s most iconic distilleries – Caroni 1975 Limited and Angostura Limited.
The unique blend of Angostura and Caroni aged rums ranging from 20 to 23 years old, combines to produce an expression with sweet and smoky depths.
Chairman of Angostura Holdings Limited, Mr. Terrence Bharath, said: “After three years in development, we’re delighted to extend our Private Cask Collection with the launch of Angostura Zenith, making our rum offering one of the most unique in the world. We are constantly striving to bring the spirit of Trinidad and Tobago to rum connoisseurs around the world and the launch of Angostura Zenith demonstrates our commitment to producing world class rums.”
Zenith takes the House of Angostura Private Cask Collection to new heights with the last of the best of the legendary House of Caroni. Established in 1923 on the site of the old Caroni sugar factory, the now defunct Caroni Distillery produced highly sought-after rums notable for a distinctive heavy profile, rich, earthy and smoky.
Produced with the last of Caroni’s treasured molasses, tasting notes include rich aromas of cocoa, oaky notes with hints of raisins on the palate and subtle apple notes, complete with warm aged notes of sherry with a lasting dry, crisp finish – the perfect proportions to achieve absolute depth and balance.
Rich gold in colour, as befits such a rare release, Angostura Zenith has a deeply complex character, brimming over with sweet tropical fruits, warm vanilla toffee, indulgent cocoa and a dry, crisp oak smokiness.
The House of Angostura Private Cask collection consists of a range of limited-edition mature rums originating from specially selected casks with a dedication to artistry and craftsmanship. It captures the ageing process of Angostura award-winning rums, while highlighting the journey of the rums from cane field to the shelf.
