Port of Spain, Trinidad. December 2nd, 2023: On December 1st, 2023, Angostura® suffered fire damage to an area of its premises that does not involve the main rum production area. The area affected was one of the botanical storage areas for bitters production. Our staff on duty at the time worked tirelessly and assiduously to curtail the spread of the fire. We wish to thank the Chief Fire Officer, Mr Arnold Bristo, and his dedicated team for their sterling effort to contain the fire.
We extend our deepest gratitude to the dedicated employees and the brave firefighters whose efficiency and quick response ensured the safety of everyone involved. Their commitment to safety and professionalism in the face of adversity is truly commendable.
It is important to note that business operations, including sales, will continue as normal. Our production processes remain unaffected, and we assure our customers and partners of our commitment to uninterrupted service.
As we continue to investigate, our priority remains to be the safety of our employees and the community.
