World’s Most Expensive Rum Soon to Be Available in NZ

For Immediate Release

World’s Most Expensive Rum Soon to Be Available in New Zealand

Angostura has created the world’s most expensive blend of rum, Legacy by Angostura. One bottle of the luxury blend will go on sale in New Zealand in November. With only twenty 500ml bespoke decanters available worldwide, the bottle is expected to fetch NZ$30,000 via Webb’s Premiere auction house.

Like all exceptional blends of spirits, the production of this rum involves just as much art as science and has been a labour of love for the Angostura Master Blenders who have fifty years experience. The project has taken six years of meticulous work with seven of the brand’s most rare and precious rums making the final recipe.

The youngest rum is 17 years old and all of the rums in the blend have been aged in once used American Oak Bourbon casks on site at Angostura’s distillery in Trinidad.

John Georges, Master Distiller at Angostura said, “There was no set recipe when we started this process. We have experimented with a number of rums that had the characteristics we felt deserved to be prominent.

Legacy by Angostura is the ultimate expression of Angostura rum. We set out to create the greatest sipping rum ever produced and we believe we have achieved something that is both unique and unequalled. Once these 20 bottles have been sold, no more of this liquid will be available, so it’s a truly unique opportunity for a few select individuals.”

With the average [25ml/one ounce] drink setting you back US$1250, Legacy by Angostura is guaranteed to be the greatest sipping rum ever produced and the ultimate celebratory tipple of Trinidad’s culture and Independence.

Not only is the rum of the highest standard in the world, the decanter, stopper and presentation box are also unique collectors’ items. Angostura has engaged Asprey of London, jeweller to the Prince of Wales, to develop the twenty limited edition decanters, which each took over 56 hours to complete using ten different master craftsman.

The auction will be held at Webb’s fine & rare wine auction – 18 Manukau Road, Newmarket in Auckland on November 4th at 6.30pm.
