Spirit of the Month: April 2020
We choose our Spirit of the Month to highlight some of the greatest spirits in the world. Some of them are age-old classics, some of them are great new releases, but whatever it is, you can be sure that it's something we love. This month we've chosen:
Angostura No. 1 Second EditionPlease wait Please wait
The second release in Angostura’s Cask Collection, this 16-year-old rum has been matured in American oak for a decade, before spending a further six years in second fill French oak ex-Cognac casks. The palate is nutty and sweet, with notes of peach, hazelnut, candied apricot, dried fruit and summer flowers.
Throughout April we are celebrating all things rum, and we have chosen Angostura No. 1 as our Spirit of the Month as we love its take on cask-aged rums.
About the Producer
One of the biggest rum producers in the Caribbean, Angostura was founded in the 1800s by a German doctor who created an aromatic bitter as a medicinal tincture, which proved to be a popular addition to cocktails. In 1936 Angostura began producing rum, initially to use in the creation of their ever-popular aromatic bitters, but quickly began producing and aging rum for sale.
