Port of Spain, Trinidad. April 1st, 2022: Angostura® Chill is proud to announce that the brand will be extending its sponsorship of the Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) tournament. For the 2022-2024 seasons, Angostura® Chill will continue to refresh fans at refreshment zones at all T20 matches and all drinks breaks will be named “Chill” breaks in honour of Angostura® Chill. Angostura® Chill is the only soft drink in the world made with the legendary ANGOSTURA® aromatic bitters. The sponsorship of CPL, which attracted over half a billion viewers in 2021, was instrumental in driving visibility and awareness of the rebrand from Angostura® Lemon Lime and Bitters to Angostura® Chill and provided a global platform with the vast international viewership which spans cricket fans from the US to the UK, Australia to India. The sparkling non-alcoholic refreshment shares the home isles of the Trinbago Knight Riders. CPL Commercial Director, Jamie Stewart commented, “Angostura® is one of the region’s great brands, proudly Caribbean but truly global. The innovative Angostura® Chill products have delighted players and fans alike for the last three years, and it is with great pleasure that we continue this partnership for three more. We look forward to more delicious refreshment from Angostura ® Chill, as together we enjoy the biggest season yet for “the biggest party in sport.” Kathryna Baptiste Assee, Group General Counsel and Corporate Secretary at Angostura Ltd said: “Angostura® Chill is a brand from the Caribbean that celebrates the best flavours, energy, and attitude of the Caribbean. The deep passion for cricket and a good lime unites all of the Caribbean islands. The CPL T20, is a vibrant, colourful, inclusive expression of our collective Caribbean heritage and therefore is a natural fit for our Caribbean brand – Angostura® Chill, which is enjoyed across the region. As we extend the Angostura® Chill range beyond the classic zesty Lemon, Lime & bitters, tangy Blood Orange & bitters, and vibrant Sorrel & bitters into another exciting flavour, we are also expanding the international footprint of the brand. This CPL partnership puts Angostura® Chill on the world stage and will make the brand synonymous with the upbeat, collective energy of Caribbean T20 cricket.”

Angostura® aromatic bitters is proud to have held a Royal Warrant of Appointment from HM Queen Elizabeth II since 1955. In 2012, the 60th year of her Majesty’s reign, we broke with nearly 200 years of tradition by re-designing the Angostura ® aromatic bitters. This was with the aim to raise funds for the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust, the official charity of the Royal Warrant Holders Association, which makes awards to craftsmen and women to help them further their careers.

Angostura Holdings Limited has a policy framework which is outlined in its Employee handbook and a Whistleblower policy in place. Under the Whistleblower process, employees may anonymously report matters including issues of sexual harassment without fear of retaliation. It also guides the Company to protect the confidentiality of harassment allegations as an investigation pursues. A Board of Directors meeting is scheduled for later this week and this matter is expected to engage the Board’s attention. Angostura Holdings Limited policy on the issue is clear. Sexual harassment is not condoned or tolerated in the workplace and employees are made aware of their rights, roles and responsibilities if they feel they have been a victim of harassment. We treat all accusations of sexual harassment allegations very seriously regardless of whom they are directed toward. In keeping with Angostura Holdings Limited’s policy and as a matter of responsible corporate behaviour, as the investigation proceeds and for the protection of the complainant, records of the complaint of harassment will not be shared in the public domain.
The Board of Directors of Angostura Holdings Ltd held a meeting yesterday at which the Chairman, Dr. Rolph Balgobin was not present. At the meeting, the Board unanimously resolved that a committee of three independent persons will be appointed to carry out an impartial investigation into the allegations made by the anonymous whistleblower. The meeting was adjourned to confirm that all arrangements regarding the appointment of the investigators have been put in place.
Trinidad Distillers Limited (TDL) is not discharging un-treated effluent directly into Beetham’s municipal drains as alleged by protesters on Tuesday January 17th, 2017. In keeping with the Environmental Management Authority (EMA) requirements, TDL (a subsidiary of Angostura Limited) constructed and now operates a Waste Water Treatment Plant as per the guidelines stipulated in the certificate of environmental clearance (CEC – 3726/2012). The brown liquid discharged into the drains is the treated waste water generated from TDL’s molasses based distillery. It is biodegradable and non-toxic. The company monitors the treated waste water quality daily and results are sent to the EMA weekly. It cleans the municipal drain which passes through its compound quarterly. The main drain outside the facility, into which the waste water flows – the Mendez drain, appears to have structural issues which prevents the free flow of the waste water and often results in stagnation. The odour that the residents of Laventille are experiencing from time to time may be attributable to our waste water treatment plant processing. The company is working diligently to reduce the odour. Regular meetings with residents of Laventille and Beetham are held to keep them informed of our progress. The Member of Parliament for Laventille East, Mr. Leonce, Councillor Akil Audain and Councillor Adanna Gordon-Griffith are routinely informed of our progress.
