Equiano Rum

Ian Burrell and his team have created a rum that celebrates their beliefs, naming it after Olaudah Equiano, an unsung freedom fighter whose autobiography shaped history. Like our rum, Equiano was born in Africa, journeyed to the Caribbean and settled in the UK, where he became a prominent figure in the freedom and abolition movement in both Britain and the US. Equiano’s distinct liquid starts at emerging new world producers Gray’s Distillery in Mauritius, where 100% pure rum matures in ex-cognac casks for a minimum of 10 years. Blended with award-winning ex-bourbon cask rum from Foursquare in Barbados, Richard has produced a rum that is quite simply like no other.
