Caroni Trinidad Rum
Founded in 1923, in the heart of the Caroni plain's sugarcane plantations, this famed Trinidad distillery was renowned throughout the world for producting one of the very best Heavy Rums, receiving high praise from British Navy. In 2003, with the closing of the nearby state-owned sugar refinery, the Trinidad sugarcane production ceased and the distillery was inevitably shut down shortly after.
The Caroni 12 years old bottling contains rum form 2000 vintage, the last available barrels of 100% Trinidad Rum produced from local molasses, distilled and matured for twelve years on the island. The tropical conditions result in a 60% loss of the distilled spirit due to evaporation: the angel's share. To perfectly capture the unique Heavy Rum character of this closed distillery, the Caroni 12 year old has been bottled at 55%. Furthermore, the label reflects an original from 1940 to commemorate the Golden age of Trinidad Rum.
