Equiano starts its journey at Gray's distillery in Mauritius, where fresh molasses is barrelled for 10 years in a combination of French Limousin Oak and Cognac casks, giving the liquid complexity and depth of flavour. It's then blended with award-winning rum from Foursquare, that has been barrelled in American White Oak, formally matured bourbon providing a one-of-a-kind naturally flavoured rum. Aged for a minimum of eight years and carefully cultivated in two different yet distinct tropical climates means Equiano matures at a far faster rate than many other dark spirits, delivering a liquid that is like no other. 

 

TASTING NOTES WRITTEN BY IAN BURRELL

On the nose: Like any quality premium rum, Equiano subtly delivers tropical warmth as soon as its aroma touches your nose. Rich, notes of dried fruits such as raisins and sultanas combine with sweet toffee, butterscotch and caramel culminating with a suggestion of orange peel, vanilla and buttered wood.

On the palate: Equiano delivers all the natural sweet notes of a well-aged rum from American white oak ex-bourbon casks. It has a warm toffee and butterscotch mouth-feel, with chewy raisins and brown sugar flavours that emerge from the liquid as it caresses your tongue.

To finish: Although Equiano is a naturally sweet rum with no added sugar or spices, it has a medium to sweet ending with touches of oak, anise, sweet pepper with a hint of bitter orange peel.
