Angostura is probably better known for its aromatic bitters than for its rum. The company’s founder, a German named Dr. Johann Siegert, arrived in Venezuela in 1820 and was later appointed surgeon general in the town of Angostura. Siegert perfected his bitters in 1824 as a remedy for fever, stomachache, and a roster of other complaints. Angostura Bitters became internationally famous by the late 1800s. The company got into rum marketing in the early years of the 20th century, and then opened its own distillery in Trinidad in 1945.
Bright and rich in appearance. The bouquet has dominant aromas of fresh bananas, followed by notes of sugar cane. The palate is much more neutral, with only delicate hints of flavour. This rum would be perfect for a wide range of cocktails. Its delicate undertones of banana and pineapple also make it the perfect choice for an after dinner drink.
