A Unique Collaboration

Equiano Rum is renowned for its innovative approach, combining the best of the Eastern and Western hemispheres. Equiano Light is no exception. This exceptional blend marries lightly aged molasses rum from the Caribbean with fresh sugar cane juice rum from Africa, resulting in a refreshingly unique spirit that challenges traditional notions of rum.

Tasting Notes


Equiano Light displays a subtle light golden hue, almost sugarcane beige, reflecting the careful blending of barrel-aged and unaged rums from Barbados and Mauritius.

On the Nose

The aroma offers a harmonious balance of fresh sugarcane with hints of vanilla, dried light oak, and earthy, herbal notes typically associated with sugarcane juice rum. The 43% ABV also delivers aromas of light tropical fruits, citrus oils, and hints of green apple as the rum warms and acclimatizes to your glass.

On the Palate

The initial mouthfeel offers a medium sweet taste of ripe sugarcane, accompanied by tropical fruit and citrus peel. This is layered with flavors of green apples, pears, and subtle notes of vanilla and light oak. The experience is light-bodied with the natural, subtle sweetness of exotic fruits, making it an exceptionally balanced rum.

To Finish

The aged Barbadian component of Equiano Light takes center stage in the finish. The tropical aging in once-used American oak barrels imparts a light dusting of wood on the finish. The initial sweetness transitions to a dry, clean ending with hints of citrus peel, vanilla, white pepper, and sweet spices, leaving a lasting impression.

History: Honoring a Legacy

Equiano Light celebrates the legacy of Olaudah Equiano, a freedom fighter whose memoirs, "The Interesting Narrative of Olaudah Equiano", played a pivotal role during the Enlightenment. This rum honors his contributions to history, with 5% of global company profits supporting ground-level Freedom + Equality organizations annually. Equiano Light embodies the spirit of enlightenment and positive change, making it a meaningful addition to any collection.
