Product Description

Opportunity is often embedded in risk. In 1932 a great fire destroyed the Trinidad & Tobago Government Rum Bond. Joseph Bento Fernandes master blender and owner of Fernandes Distillery seized this opportunity and bought the charred casks of rum only then to discover that this rum had aged and matured magnificently. This prized rum was skilfully blended and called 1919 "Super" Premium Rum (1919 being the year the rum was casked). As expected, this rum was soon in great demand. This demand eventually spread overseas through a most interseting set of circumstances.

With the declaration of World War II in 1939, Trinidad and Tobago troops volunteered to serve on the battlefronts in Europe. The company decided to send a bottle of the 1919 "Super" Premium Rum on a regular basis to each of our airman serving overseas. Through their generousity they soon came to share our rum with their foreign colleagues - and thus our product became known in the wider world and our 1919 "Super" Premium Rum came to symbolize the spirit of Trinidad & Tobago.

best present ever

I was bought this by a colleague when he visited our offices in T&T and boy was he ever mr popular after! By far the best rum you can buy, smooth and warm and utterly divine. I'm drinking mine sparingly until someone else heads out that way and can get me another bottle. You won't want any other once you've tried this

One of the Best Rum's in the World

A real secret, this red rum is the best from Trinidad and one of the best in the world. A very smooth rum that is infinitely more drinkable than more famous brands whether with soda, water, coke or coconut water.

The King of Rums

This is not a good rum. This is the King of Rums. It rules the rum world with velvety smoothness... it sits on the throne of vanilla echoes.... it is happy to reign with benevolence in a glass or to mingle with grace and dignity with the juices and mixers of your choice. I have spent far more money on far less worthy rums... and after every temptation I have returned to Angostura 1919. I humbly advise the reader to consider my proposition. Drink less and drink well...
