Equiano Light Rum + Gift Box // 750 ml
Equiano Rum is a multi-award winning African & Caribbean rum named after Olaudah Equiano. Born in Africa and enslaved aged 11, Equiano was taken to the Caribbean and eventually settled in the UK as a free man. He paved his way to liberation by selling rum and became a prominent freedom fighter and leader in the abolition movement between the UK and the US. Equiano was a brave visionary. Between his values, journey, and impact, the team at Equiano Rum is proud to have his name adorn the Equiano Bottle.
Refreshingly unique, Equiano Light Rum is an exceptional blend of lightly aged molasses rum from the Caribbean, fused with fresh sugar cane juice rum from Africa. Challenging the ideas of rum, Equiano Light elevates the category and enriches the taste profile of an often-underrated spirit, with a sophistication you might expect from a darker rum. Made in limited batch, this bottle is presented in a special bespoke gift box.
In your glass you’ll see a subtle light golden hue, almost sugarcane beige, which is a result of the careful blending of barrel aged and unaged rums from Barbados & Mauritius. On the nose, a harmonious balance of fresh sugarcane with hints of vanilla, dried light oak and touches of earthy, herbal notes normally associated with sugarcane juice rum. The 43% ABV also delivers aromas of light tropical fruits, citrus oils, and hints of green apple as it warms and acclimatizes to your glass.
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 experience is light bodied with the natural, subtle sweetness of exotic fruits. The aged Barbadian component takes center stage at the finish, as the tropical aging of the rum, in once used American oak barrels, leaves a light dusting of wood on the finish. The initial sweetness quickly dries off leaving citrus peel, touches of vanilla, white pepper, and sweet spices.
