Guests at the launch of Angos-
tura s new rum, No 1 were remind-
ed of many firsts, the first moon
landing, the first four-minute
mile, and even first love. It was
all to emphasise the importance
of Angostura s third premium rum
and the first in a line of new cask
Angostura No 1, joins eight-year-
old Angostura 1919, and 12-year-
old Angostura 1824. It is the first
premium rum to be unveiled in The
Cask Collection, a new limited edi-
tion range dedicated to rums aged
in special casks.
According to the brochures
handed out at the event which
was held at Angostura s Laven-
tille offices, the No 1 "rums are
aged eight to ten years and left
to marry for 12 months in first-
fill bourbon casks."
Angostura s master distiller John
Georges was high in praise for the
blenders of the rum, stating that
in his recent travels across Europe,
the response to No 1 was phenom-
enal. He pointed to a tasting event
in Denmark where 30 bottles were
sold in one evening as proof of the
rum s drinkability.
No 1 is a limited edition rum and
there are only 9,600 bottles avail-
able worldwide. Rum lovers in T&T
can buy Angostura No 1 at The
Retail Shop on Angostura s com-
pound, Eastern Main Rd, Laventille.
At the event, guests were served
chocolates infused with the rum
made by local artisan chocolatier

Edwards served First Love, a cock-
