Angostura 1919 is a specially blended multiple award winning rum, which celebrates a very particular date in the development of the rum industry in Trinidad & Tobago, as well as the Caribbean.
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 skillfully blended and called "1919 Aged Rum."
MEET OUR MASTER DISTILLER
John joined Angostura in 1982 and has worked in many different roles in the production of fine rum. In his own words, John has "been in and around the manufacture and ageing of rum for more than a quarter of a century".
Always experimenting with different ways to age our rums, John has pioneered new premium aged blends including the multi-award winning Angostura International Rum Collection. It is testament to John’s skill that he has doubled the rum distillation output at Angostura while still maintaining the finesse required to produce super premium brands.
As much Art as Science, John learned much from his predecessors such as Tommy Gatcliffe, a pioneer in Trinidad rum production, and today a new generation of distillers and spirit crafters look to John for their inspiration.
A native Trinidadian, John was educated at the University of the West Indies where he graduated with a BSc in Chemical Engineering.
Our rums are 100% Trinidadian, made in one distillery on one Island. Much like a single malt only better
