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 skilfully blended and called "1919 Aged Rum."
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.
