ANGOSTURA WINS GOLD, SILVER AT SPIRITS BUSINESS RUM AND CACHAÇA MASTERS 2018
Port of Spain, Trinidad, 7th May, 2018. The House of Angostura® has taken home four medals at the prestigious and highly competitive Spirits Business – Rum and Cachaça Masters 2018 competition.
Both Angostura 1919® and Angostura® 7 Year Old rum won gold medals in the competition, with the judges singling out Angostura 7 Year Old’s “good integration of wood”. Meanwhile, Angostura® Reserva and Angostura® 1787 copped silver.
The Spirits Business –Rum & Cachaça Masters competition aims to find and reward the finest rum and cachaça brands on the world stage. It is chaired by The Spirits Business and a panel of leading spirits specialists, and competing rums and cachaças are judged in a blind tasting.
Rums were assessed and marked on nose, palate, appearance and overall balance. Only spirits scoring above 70 points received medals. Angostura 1919® won its gold medal in the very competitive Gold Rum Super Premium Category, while Angostura® 7 Year Old won gold in the Dark Rum Aged up to 7 Years Category. Angostura® Reserva won silver in the Premium White Rum Category, as did Angostura 1787® in the Dark Rum Ultra-Premium category.
“We are told that this year’s competition was notable for the sheer quality of the expressions on display and by a high degree of innovation,” says Angostura’s Chief Executive Officer, Genevieve Jodhan, “which makes this win very satisfying for our team.”
HOUSE OF ANGOSTURA®: A CELEBRATED APPROACH
The only rum distillery in Trinidad today, Angostura’s signature style stems from techniques that have stood the test of time:
- Production with only the highest quality molasses
- Fermentation using proprietary culture of yeast
- Distillation in continuous stills
- Core range is aged in charred American oak casks, that were once used for aging bourbon (often referred to as First-Fill Bourbon Casks)
