Equiano is the world's first African and Caribbean rum.
The multi-award winning liquid is one of the most highly acclaimed rums in the world for the 8 – 10 years aged category. Equiano is a 100% true rum, with no spice, no additives and no added sugar. It's just rich and deep in flavors that come from the ex-Cognac and ex-Bourbon barrels it tropically matures in.
Named after Olaudah Equiano, a freedom fighter who paved his way to liberation through selling rum. Equiano was one of the first African writers to have his work published and his compelling memoirs went on to inform the Transatlantic Slave Trade Act of 1807, impacting the freedom of people all over the world, freedom that many are still fighting for today.
Equiano was a brave visionary. Between his values, journey and impact, we feel great pride and honor in his name adorning our bottle.
Equiano’s values distill our beliefs perfectly and that is why we are donating 5% of company profits of every bottle purchased here to ground-level freedom and equality projects annually, and celebrating a man who we all aspire to be more like.
