Equiano subtly delivers tropical warmth. The bouquet is initially rich, with notes of raisins and Scottish toffee, then particularly sweet around soft caramel, vanilla and pastry aromas. The palate offers all the natural sweetness of a rum aged in American white oak barrels that have contained Bourbon, we find aromas of soft caramel, raisins and brown sugar. Everything is balanced and comes to caress the taste buds as the tasting progresses. The finish is complex and suave with lovely woody notes, a touch of anise and dried citrus fruits (bitter orange peel, candied lemon).

It is named after Olaudah Equiano, a freedom fighter who fought his way to liberation by selling rum. Equiano was one of the first African writers to have his work published and his fascinating memoirs were the driving force behind the Transatlantic Slave Trade Act of 1807. The Equiano Rum Co Foundation is proud to allocate 5% of profits go to local freedom and equality projects. worked his way to liberation by selling rum. Equiano is the first African and Caribbean rum in the world. This multi-award winning aged rum is one of the best rums in the world in the 8-12 year old category, having won gold in all major international competitions. Equiano is the result of the collaboration of two distilleries located on two different continents, creating something entirely new for this centuries-old craft. The liquid is a blend of one of Africa's finest distilleries, Mauritius' Gray's Distillery, and world-renowned Bajan distillery, Foursquare. By bringing together these two rum purists, Equiano is today a 100% natural rum, without spices, without additives and without added sugar. All of its rich, deep flavours come from the old bourbon and Cognac barrels in which it underwent tropical maturation, making Equiano totally unique.
