About this deal

Continuing to celebrate the legacy of Olaudah Equiano, Equiano Light is inspired by the theme of enlightenment, a period where his acclaimed memoirs, ' The Interesting Narrative of Olaudah Equiano', played a pivotal role in shaping positive change. Equiano Rum is the delicious result of a collaboration between two distilleries, Barbados Foursquare and Gray's Distillery of Mauritius.

He was a visionary who invested in eclectic barrel types, small pot stills and a proprietary yeast strain which lead.

Made with collaboration between the very well respected Foursquare (from Barbados) and Gray's Distillery (from Mauritius). The expression is matured in a combination of ex-bourbon and ex-cognac casks to create its fabulously sweet flavour.

The expression is the world's first African and Caribbean rum blend, making it one of the most unique rums on the market. are on a mission to redefine a four-century-old industry by creating unique blends of rum from around the world.

To taste it has a warm toffee and butterscotch mouth-feel, with chewy raisins and brown sugar flavours that emerge from the liquid as it caresses your tongue. Named after Olaudah Equiano, an important figure and freedom fighter - 5% of the annual profits go to ground level equality projects.

The rum continues these beliefs by donating company profits to ground-level freedom and equality projects. The aged Barbadian component takes centre stage here, as the tropical aging of the rum, in once used American oak barrels, leaves a light dusting of wood on the finish. On the nose: Like any quality premium rum, Equiano subtly delivers tropical warmth as soon as its aroma touches your nose. On the palate, it has a smooth and rich flavour, with notes of dark chocolate, dried fruit, and a slight spiciness. ON THE PALATE
The initial mouthfeel of this light rum is a medium sweet taste of ripe sugarcane, more tropical fruit and citrus peel, layered with green apples, pears and hints of vanilla and light oak on the palate.

the two separate rums are then married in ex-bourbon casks before being bottled at the Foursquare distillery. To finish: Although Equiano is a naturally sweet rum with no added sugar or spices, it has a medium to sweet ending with touches of oak, anise, sweet pepper with a hint of bitter orange peel.If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout. Once blended, the rum undergoes a second maturation in Spanish Oloroso casks, adding a huge depth of character. I received a sample of this rum in this year's (2021) MoM Advent calendar and thus far (17 days in) it has been one of the highlights.
