Rum 1824 is produced in a limited series and represents the spearhead of Angostura production. It has an amber color with gold and copper reflections, and an intense bouquet of wood, beeswax, incense and plum jam. In the mouth it's warm and enveloping, aromas of tropical fruit in syrup stand out which are accompanied by notes of vanilla and nutmeg, with slight hints of almond on the finish.
The history of Angostura is full of charm and dates back to 1824 when the doctor Johan Gottlieb Benjamin Siegert, surgeon in the liberation army under the command of General Simòn Bolivar, invented a remedy for the troops' digestive problems based on herbs and spices of the place. The recipe that gave life to what became the worldwide famous aromatic bitters was created right in the city of Angostura located on the banks of the Orinocco river. The success of the drink was such that Siegert founded a company to produce it which after his death was moved to Trinidad, and still carried on by his family. The starting distillate of the bitter, in addition to the 12 ingredients, was precisely the rum, hence the fame of Angostura also in the production of rums using a column still under the wise direction of the Master Distiller John Georges and part of the Authentic Caribbean Rum , the association for the protection of Caribbean rum producers.
Rum 1824 is the result of a selection and careful assembly of the Master Distillers of Casa Angostura, who take small quantities from ex-bourbon barrels containing rum aged at least 12 years. Once the assembly is complete, the blend refines indefinitely in American oak barrels, giving life to a distillate of rare elegance to be savored smooth with a good Cuban cigar.
