Angostura 1919 8 Year Old Rum is a dark rum, made to commemorate the discovery of several undamaged casks of rum after a fire destroyed the Trinidadian Government Rum Bond in 1932. The casks had been filled in 1919, and the blend that resulted from them was named for that year. It has garnered good reviews from critics across the board, and it’s generally regarded as a solid sipping rum to be enjoyed neat or on the rocks.
House of Angostura is a historic distillery best known for its first product, the legendary and ubiquitous Angostura Bitters. Founded in 1830 in the Venezuelan town of Angostura (now Ciudad Bolívar), it moved its base of operations to Trinidad in 1876. Ever since, it has been the primary producer of rum in Trinidad and Tobago, as well as a hugely successful international brand.
