Angostura celebrates 195th anniversary with Rum Day specials

On August 16, Angostura will be celebrating its 195th anniversary with Rum Day specials across the country.

In a statement issued Thursday, the company said the day commemorates the company’s signature Angostura® aromatic bitters brand as well as its high-quality locally manufactured rums.

Rahim Mohammed, Executive Manager, Corporate Services and Marketing, said the event is one to be proud of.

“The Angostura legacy belongs to all of Trinidad and Tobago. We are most proud that Angostura’s outstanding achievements have helped Trinidad and Tobago receive major recognition on the world stage. As we mark our 195th Anniversary, standing firm as the first choice for rums, we look forward to kicking off our celebrations with the rest of the country at Rum Day.

He also emphasised the necessity of safe and responsible participation in the event.

Established in 1824, the company’s operations were distinguished in 1912 when it became the sole purveyor of Angostura® aromatic bitters to the royal family of England, a tenure which continues to this day.

The company will be hosting a range of deals on White Oak, Fernandes Black Label, and Forres Park Puncheon rums.

The company said over 100 bars will be participating with $5 specials on White Oak and Black Label rums and $8 specials on Forres Park Puncheon rums.
