Equiano is an African-Caribbean blended rum made from 100% molasses. Not just a tasty treat when served neat - it's the kind of rum that transforms a classic cocktail into an occasion.

Tropical warmth on the nose, alongside rich notes of dried fruits and a touch of butterscotch and caramel. To taste, warm toffee, chewy raisins and brown sugar flavours. One to serve over ice or in an Old Fashioned.

About this product

1 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. No colorants, no flavourings, no spice or added sugar.

Equiano Rum is a collaborative project. There are two distilleries, Foursquare and Gray's Distillery, who make the rum, while the brand is owned and run by drinks marketeers Aaisha Dadral and Amanda Kakembo, Rum Ambassador Ian Burrel and more.

The name comes from Olaudah Equiano, a writer & abolitionist from the 1700s who became a prominent figure in the campaign to abolish slavery. The rum continues these beliefs by donating company profits to ground-level freedom and equality projects.
