Angostura rums grab top awards at Rum Masters Competition
Created : 9 March 2017
The newest addition to the family of premium rums, Angostura® 1787 was awarded a Gold medal in the Dark Rum- Ultra Premium category. Angostura’s 12-year old rum, Angostura 1824®, and its Angostura 1919®, both earned Gold medals in the Dark Rum - Aged 7-12 years and Gold rum – Super Premium categories respectively.
Angostura® 7-year old premium rum and its 3-year old white rum, Reserva won silver medals.
CEO Genevieve Jodhan expressed delight over the gold-medal win for the recently launched 15-year old rum, Angostura® 1787.
“All praise is due to our skilled blenders who continue to create exceptional rums,” she said.
In February, the competition brought together leading and independent rum experts, who gathered at Rum and Sugar in London’s West India Quay, to recognise and honour the world’s finest brands, through a blind tasting competition.
This year, the competition was judged by a panel chaired by Kristiane Sherry and joined by Timothy Falzon, head bartender at Mahiki; Chris Mathurin, co-founder of rum blog Rumming.co.uk; and Keegan Menezesm, Drinkapparition blogger.
