Angostura to auction ‘world’s most expensive rum’
Wednesday, July 18 2012
Angostura has announced that in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Independence of Trinidad and Tobago, it has created the world’s most expensive blend of rum, “Legacy by Angostura.” According to a release from the company, there are only 20 500ml bespoke decanters available worldwide, valued at EUR 20,000 (approximately TT$162,208).

The release went on to say that the production of the rum “involves just as much art as science and has been a labour of love for the Angostura Master Blenders who have 50 years experience between them. The project has taken six years of meticulous work with seven of the brand’s most rare and precious rums making the final recipe.”

The youngest rum is 17 years old and all of the rums in the blend have been aged in once used 200 litre American Oak Bourbon casks on site at Angostura’s distillery in Laventille.

Robert Wong, CEO of Angostura said, “Complex, smooth and aromatic, ‘Legacy by Angostura’ is the ultimate expression of Angostura rum. We set out to create the greatest sipping rum ever produced and we believe we have achieved something that is both unique and unequalled. Once these 20 bottles have been sold, no more of this liquid will be available, so it’s a truly unique opportunity for a few select individuals.”

Not only is the rum of the highest standard in the world, the decanter, stopper and presentation box are also unique collectors’ items. Angostura has engaged Asprey of London, jeweller to the Prince of Wales, to develop the 20 limited edition decanters, which each took over 56 hours to complete using ten different master craftsman.

One bottle of the luxury blend will be auctioned for charity on August 4 at 9 pm during Angostura’s gala dinner and dance at the Hyatt Regency Port-of-Spain. Attendance is by invitation only and a donation of TT$1,000 is required to secure a place.
