In 1776, Trinidad, then a colony of Spain, finally opened its shores to the French planters of the Eastern Caribbean islands. It was the beginning of the transformation of Trinidad from a Spanish backwater to the newest sugar plantation frontier.
The year 1787, the milestone which Angostura 1787 rum celebrates, was a landmark period as it was then that Trinidad’s very first sugar mill was established at the Lapeyrouse Estate. This marked Trinidad’s inevitable climb to the heights of fine rum production. During the 17th and 18th centuries, planters preferred European imported drinks; by the end of the 18th century rum had become universally popular. An exquisite sipping rum, Angostura 1787 commemorates the establishment of the country’s first sugar mill.
It is this blending legacy that Angostura is keeping alive with the exquisite homage that is Angostura 1787 rum. A rich bounty, not just the golden crystals of sugar, but that fascinating new spirit, rum, distilled from its secondary product, molasses.
The story of Angostura beings in 1824, when Dr. Siegert perfected his recipe for his aromatic bitters in the town of Angostura in Venezuela. This is where the world-class bitters get their name from, not from the use of angostura bark (because they don’t use it!). In 1875, the company moved to Trinidad, where it still resides today. In the 1940s, Angostura began distilling their own Trinidadian rum, a range of which has featured both white and dark rums over the years, including the Legacy - a very well-aged expression produced in 2012 to celebrate 50 years of Trinidad & Tobago’s independence. Angostura Bitters are still a vital ingredient in a gamut of cocktails, including the Manhattan, Old Fashioned and the Champagne Cocktail.
