Equiano Rum Bottling Note

Equiano Rum is the delicious result of a collaboration between two fabulous distilleries, marrying liquid from Barbados' Foursquare and Gray's Distillery of Mauritius. The rum from Foursquare is aged in American white oak, while the liquid from Gray's is aged in French limousin oak and Cognac casks. It's then married in ex-bourbon casks and bottled at Foursquare, weighing in at 43% ABV. Two hemispheres meet in one bottle, and it's rather marvellous.

What's more, the spirit is named after Olaudah Equiano, a freedom fighter who played a pivotal part in the abolition movement, and the folks behind Equiano Rum donate 5% of the annual profits to ground level equality projects each year.

Makes great rum cocktails!

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. I don't think I would drink this neat as it doesn't appear to be that type of rum, however I added it to some spicy ginger beer with a garnish of orange zest and it really is quite a decent rum.

You should not be afraid to try this rum. It's a bit expensive for a mixing rum but I can't argue with the result.

Having tried a lot of rums like twin fin, pirates grog, neptune, rumbullion, dippy share to mention a few nothing hits the palate like equiano. For the price it is an incredible rum and by far and away the best I have tasted. I do understand people saying it can be a little harsh neat but it is aged in bourbon barrels which in my opinion is where thd harshness comes from but with a splash of coke a load of ice n fresh lime it is stunning

Nice in a cocktail

had high hopes for this after reading the reviews. But I found it harsh & difficult to drink neat.
Nice in a cocktail, but I wouldn’t buy it again.
