This past September, The House of Angostura announced the debut of a super-premium aged rum called 'Angostura 1787.' With a nod to the history of Trinidad's long-standing sugar industry, the finely crafted sipping rum is a unique choice for discerning drinkers.

Angostura 1787 is a 15-year-old aged rum that "commemorates the establishment of the first sugar mill in Trinidad, at the famous Lapeyrouse sugar plantation, in 1787." The drink itself is made from a curated selection of rums chosen from the brand's vast aging warehouse -- each of which have been matured in charred oak barrels for 15 years. The result is a premium rum with aromas of oak, dried fruit and bananas, as well as top notes of apples. The taste features similar oak notes, with a hint of dried fruit and subtle toffee nuances.

With many consumers looking for high-end alternatives to mainstream alcohol brands, this super-premium rum is sure to be a hit.
