Angostura has announced the launch of No.1, the first in a new collection of limited edition premium rums, which has been released in the UK this week.
Bottled at 40% and aged in special casks, Angostura No.1 is the first premium rum to be introduced in the new Cask Collection, which is entirely dedicated to rums made in special barrels. A blend of carefully selected rums, aged from ten to twelve years, the liquid was left for an additional twelve months in First Fill Bourbon Casks.

Only 9,600 bottles of No.1 are available globally with just 20 cases allocated to the UK and Angostura advises rum enthusiasts to act quickly if they don’t want to miss out on acquiring this special edition.
All Angostura rums are aged in American oak casks that were once used for aging bourbon. As the rum matures – the interaction of the liquid and the oak results in a mellow well-balanced rum – a smoothness that is characteristic of Angostura’s blends.
The House of Angostura is known for its iconic bitters and rum-making heritage and is the only rum distillery in Trinidad today. Alison Gibb, Angostura International Brand Manager, says, “We are already seeing huge interest from consumers and undoubtedly the popularity of quality approved rum is on the increase as enthusiasts look for standout taste and an exceptional finish.
“It’s the first Angostura premium rum to be aged in our first fill Bourbon barrels and we are confident that this initial interest will continue to grow as the collection expands.”
Angostura No. 1 is currently available at specialist stockists.
