On the nose: Like any quality premium rum, Equiano subtly delivers tropical warmth as soon as its aroma touches your nose. brought these two rum purists together to create a 100% natural rum, with no spices or additives and no added sugar.

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. Part of this exceptionally smooth rum has been aged in American oak casks by Foursquare and part has been aged in French ex cognac casks by Gray's. On the palate: Equiano delivers all the natural sweet notes of a well-aged rum from American white oak ex-bourbon casks. year French Limousin oak ex-Cognac cask rum from Gray's distillery in Mauritius is blended with 8 year American oak ex-bourbon cask rum from Foursquare in Barbados. If you are looking to break into the world of sipping rum, Doorly’s XO is the perfect place to start, as it is slightly softer and naturally sweeter than its siblings thanks to the sherry influence.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. A rich and deep flavoured rum that has been made with no added sugar, no spice, no flavourings or colourings. Named after Olaudah Equiano, an important figure and freedom fighter - 5% of the annual profits go to ground level equality projects. The rum matures in a combination of ex-bourbon and ex-cognac casks to create its exceptional flavour.

Equiano delivers all the natural sweet notes of a well-aged rum from American white oak ex-bourbon casks.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. The Barbados rum is from Foursquare distillery and is aged for 8 years in ex-bourbon casks, while the Mauritian rum is from Gray’s distillery and is aged for 2 years in French oak casks. Equiano Rum is the delicious result of a collaboration between two distilleries, Barbados Foursquare and Gray's Distillery of Mauritius.

Equiano starts its journey at Gray's distillery in Mauritius, where fresh molasses is barrelled for 10 years in a combination of French Limousin Oak and Cognac casks, giving the liquid complexity and depth of flavour. He was a visionary who invested in eclectic barrel types, small pot stills and a proprietary yeast strain which lead.
