Exclusive Rum Goes under the Hammer

Exclusive Rum Goes under the Hammer - 4 Nov 2013 6:30pm

Webb’s are pleased to be presenting to auction a single bottle of a luxury blend of the world's most exclusive rum. Only 20 bespoke decanters are available worldwide, one of which is included in our forthcoming Fine & Rare Wine auction on the 4th of November. Angostura anticipate this decanter to achieve in the vicinity of $30,000. The decanter and presentation box are unique collectors items; designed by Asprey of London, jeweller to the Prince of Wales.

Angostura explain that 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."
