Equiano Original Dark Rum - 700ml - The World's First African & Caribbean Rum - Multi Award Winning - The perfect session Rum - Special Dark Rum Gift - Rum Deal of the day
About this deal
A collaboration between two prestigious distilleries, this premium rum marries 1 1 year cognac cask rum from Gray's distillery in Mauritius, with 8 year bourbon cask rum from Foursquare in Barbados. If you are looking to break into the world of sipping rum, Doorly’s XO is the perfect place to start, as it is slightly softer and naturally sweeter than its siblings thanks to the sherry influence. Aged for a minimum of eight years and carefully cultivated in two different yet distinct tropical climates means Equiano matures at a far faster rate than many other dark spirits, delivering a liquid that is like no other. This expression blends molasses rum from the Caribbean with sugar cane juice rum from Africa to create this one-of-a-kind dram. There are two distilleries, Foursquare and Gray's Distillery, who make the rum, while the brand is owned and run by drinks marketeers Aaisha Dadral and Amanda Kakembo, Rum Ambassador Ian Burrel and more.
