A Natural Masterpiece

Unlike many other rums, it contains no spices, additives, or added sugar. The rich and deep flavors that characterize Equiano come solely from its careful maturation in ex-bourbon and ex-cognac casks, a process that takes place in tropical climates to enhance the rum's profile.

Tasting Notes

On the Nose

The aroma of Equiano Original Rum greets you with tropical warmth, offering rich notes of dried fruits like raisins and sultanas, intertwined with sweet toffee, butterscotch, and caramel. Subtle hints of orange peel, vanilla, and buttered wood add depth to its inviting fragrance.

On the Palate

Upon tasting, Equiano reveals its natural sweetness derived from well-aged rum in American white oak ex-bourbon casks. The palate is treated to a delightful blend of warm toffee and butterscotch, complemented by the chewy texture of raisins and the rich flavor of brown sugar. This harmonious combination dances on your tongue, providing a truly memorable experience.

To Finish

Equiano Original Rum finishes with a medium to sweet aftertaste, despite having no added sugar or spices. The finale is marked by touches of oak, anise, sweet pepper, and a hint of bitter orange peel, leaving a lasting impression of complexity and refinement.

History: A Tribute to Freedom and Equality

Named after Olaudah Equiano, a historical figure who gained his freedom by selling rum and became a notable freedom fighter, Equiano Rum carries a legacy of equality and liberation. In honor of Equiano's values, 5% of the company's profits and £2 from every bottle sold are dedicated annually to grassroots freedom and equality projects.
