A well balanced blend of barrel aged Barbadian rum and Mauritanian fresh sugar cane juice rum, just enough vanilla on the palate.

Ian Burrell is a charismatic living legend in the Rum business. He founded London's famous "Rum Fest" event and was named Rum Ambassador of the Year among other notable accomplishments. This year he launched Equiano Rum together with three other founding partners - Oli Bartlam, Amanda Kakembo and Aaisha Dadral. Named after the famous abolitionist Olaudah Equiano, this new rum is a blend of spirits from the Caribbean island of Barbados and the African island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean - bridging the cultures across time and space.

Equiano Light Rum follows in the multi-award-winning footsteps of the original. Gray’s Distillery in Mauritius creates a cane-based white Rum. It’s sent to Foursquare Distillery on Barbados — literally on the other side of the world — and married with molasses Rum aged for a minimum of three years in ex-Bourbon casks. The resulting Spirit is well-balanced and bottled with no artificial colors, sweeteners, or flavorings at 43% ABV.

Smartass Corner:
Olaudah Equiano was from the Kingdom of Benin (Nigeria today). He was captured and enslaved as a child, bought and sold several times, and eventually purchased his own freedom. In the meantime he had many adventures and became an author and key figure in the abolitionist movement of London during the 1700s through early 1800s.

Appearance / Color
Golden Syrup

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is bright with gentle notes of vanilla and toffee over raw cane, spring grasses, and grilled pineapple.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The flavor profile follows the nose with more vanilla and toffee, a dash of exotic fruit, Demerara, and a distant hint of menthol.

Finish
The finish is medium length with a nice sweetness and blooming warmth.
