Port of Spain, Trinidad. November 18th, 2021: Angostura® Solera Wines & Spirits has opened a retail and distribution centre in Marabella. It’s one which Chairman of Angostura Holdings Limited, Mr. Terrence Bharath describes as a ‘hybrid location’ and it’s also the first time that Angostura® is opening a retail and distribution centre in one location. Speaking at the grand opening of Angostura® Solera Wines and Spirits on Wednesday evening, Mr. Bharath says, “We need to get commercial matters moving at a rapid pace once more to move us out of this pandemic. At Angostura® we continue to do our part to show the resilience of our brand, to share our confidence with our customers and to solidify our faith in recovery and our passion for excelling. This current location in Marabella provided for the birth of a new idea and a new concept to marry a distribution depot and a Wine and Spirits store. Marabella’s location near the Solomon Hochoy Highway and Southern Main Road, makes accessibility to all parts of Trinidad easy and this location is ideal for both aspects of our business.” The retail arm of Angostura® Solera Wines and Spirits which is also located in St. Clair, Port of Spain was also based at C3 Centre, San Fernando but as the demand for Angostura’s products grew in South, the Company decided to open a retail and distribution centre in one store and move to Marabella. Commenting on the location for Angostura® Solera Wines & Spirits, San Fernando Mayor, His Worship Alderman Junia Regrello said, “Angostura® has always been a tough act to follow and with a brand that is unbelievable. You look at the atmosphere and you look at the ambience, you certainly would raise the bar and improve the competitiveness in the city of San Fernando. When I was growing up Marabella was known as the community that never sleeps and they have been going through a lull period over the past couple of years, and certainly Angostura® will wake up Marabella once more.” Impressed by the new retail and distribution centre, Senator the Honourable Paula Gopee-Scoon, Minister of Trade and Industry said, “Once again Angostura® is on the cutting edge and I really wish to applaud you for continually seeking to build and expand this brand. This physical space is strategic not only in terms of its location, but its purpose combines a retail and wholesale distribution centre, and we couldn’t be more pleased about this because it’s about generating more interest and generating more commercial activity.” Angostura® Solera Wines & Spirits sells over 350 products including all of Angostura’s locally manufactured rums, bitters and carbonated soft drinks and an imported portfolio of internationally recognized Vodka, Gin, Blended Scotch, Single Malt Scotch, Japanese Whiskies, Tequila, Liqueurs, Cream Liqueurs, Sake, Still Wines, Sparkling Wines, Proseccos and Champagne.

As the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic continue to wreak havoc on the lives of citizens of Trinidad and Tobago, Angostura® has partnered with NGOs and schools to provide relief to families during this challenging period. The fallout from this deadly virus has left many families without food on their table. To assist these families, Angostura® has donated over $350,000 in food vouchers to families across the country through over 20 NGOs and schools. They include Loveuntil Foundation, Heroes Foundation, TTPS Victims and Witness Support Unit, Chinapoo Police Youth Club, Autistic Society, Servants of Society, SMILE Foundation, Single Mothers Association of T&T, Fanny Village Government Primary, North Oropouche Government Primary and Gasparillo Secondary schools. Angostura® partnered with Xtra Foods and Persad’s ‘D’ Food King supermarkets to provide $500 vouchers per family. The food vouchers prohibit recipients from purchasing tobacco and alcohol. The names of each recipient are written on the vouchers; all recipients are required to provide a form of I.D. when redeeming the vouchers at the supermarkets. Angostura® would like to thank Xtra Foods and Persad’s ‘D’ Food King for donating additional vouchers towards the Company’s latest Corporate Social Responsibility initiative. Angostura’s Chief Executive Officer (Ag.) Ian Forbes says, “Angostura® is pleased to partner with over 20 NGOs and schools to deliver our premier 2021 CSR initiative. Many families are currently in need due to the impact of the pandemic on their lives. We at Angostura felt it was imperative to deliver food vouchers valued at $500 each to these families. Trinidad and Tobago, we will continue to support you in the fight to overcome this pandemic, we are resilient together.” Chairman of Loveuntil Foundation, Brian Jones says, “Our organisation is so appreciative of these food vouchers which are desperately needed in the Laventille community and environs, where many persons lost their jobs and are single mother households. This initiative will go a long way in preventing kids from going to bed hungry for some time.” Chief Executive Officer of Heroes Foundation, Lawrence Arjoon says, “Angostura® has consistently helped and supported our response and relief efforts at the Heroes Foundation during this pandemic. We are again grateful for their commitment to families in need. Initiatives like these reflect how private sector and civil society organisations can collaborate to have a meaningful impact, especially during this challenging period.” Principal of Fanny Village Government Primary, Cheryl Rojas says, “Our school is in a small village in Point Fortin. What is amazing about the Angostura® experience is that we didn’t reach out to them, Angostura® reached out to us which is quite remarkable, and we would be eternally grateful.” Principal of Gasparillo Secondary School, Trudy Jagoo-Maraj said, “The Gasparillo Secondary School family has been touched by Angostura’s compassion and willingness to help their fellow citizens of Trinidad and Tobago during these unprecedented times. Angostura®, you have heard the call for help and answered it magnificently.”

Ian Forbes says, “As part of encouraging everyone to get vaccinated, Angostura has taken a decision to visit mass vaccination sites to distribute COVID-19 care packages. Each package consists of a bottle of Angostura hand sanitizer, bottle of Lifebuoy antibacterial handwash, pack of Lifebuoy antibacterial wet wipes and five surgical masks.

The Company’s objective is to work with groups like the Supermarket Association of T&T, T&T Manufacturers Association, Chamber of Industry and Commerce, American Chamber of Commerce, Couva Chamber of Commerce and Chaguanas Chamber of Commerce on the vaccination drive.” The sealed COVID-19 care packages were distributed at the vaccination sites by the Angostura® team including the Company’s CEO (Ag.) and Executive Manager – Corporate Services, Rahim Mohammed. Angostura® also distributed its new carbonated soft drink, Angostura Chill – Lemon Lime and Bitters and Blood Orange and Bitters at the vaccination sites with the COVID-19 care packages. President of the Trinidad and Tobago Manufacturers’ Association, Tricia Coosal said, “We are greatly appreciative of the care packages that Angostura has distributed at the Divali Nagar site to those who have been vaccinated. Angostura is a great partner and continues to collaborate and work well with the TTMA. We continue to ask the population to get vaccinated; vaccinate to operate, vaccinate not just for yourself but for your loved ones as well.” President of the Chaguanas Chamber of Commerce, Richie Sookhai says, “With this generous donation of COVID-19 care packages to the vaccination drive, we hope as part of the business community, every little effort we make can ultimately help us as a nation return to some level of normalcy in the very near future.” President of the Supermarket Association Rajiv Diptee says, “Angostura’s donation of the COVID-19 care packages is just another hallmark of their good corporate social responsibility. They have partnered with us as a sponsor on the vaccination drive and they have really made this possible to achieve our goal of herd immunity.” The Company will also be donating care packages and Angostura Chill at vaccination sites for students in the coming weeks.
