Equiano Original Rum – Barbados


Equiano is a multi award winning premium aged rum, that is the world’s first African & Caribbean blend.

The collaboration of two distilleries on two different continents creates something entirely new for a centuries old craft.

Equiano is 100% natural, with no spices, no additives and no added sugar.

All of our rich and deep flavours come from the ex-bourbon and ex-cognac casks that it tropically matures in.

Named after Olaudah Equiano, a freedom fighter who liberated himself by selling rum. Equiano stood for equality and that is why 5% of company profits & $2 of every bottle purchased here will go to ground level freedom and quality projects annually.

ABV 43%, 70cl

Like any quality premium rum, Equiano subtly delivers tropical warmth as soon as its aroma touches your nose. Rich, notes of dried fruits such as raisins and sultanas combine with sweet toffee, butterscotch and caramel culminating with a suggestion of orange peel, vanilla and buttered wood.

Equiano delivers all the natural sweet notes of a well-aged rum from American white oak ex-bourbon casks. It has a warm toffee and butterscotch mouth-feel, with chewy raisins and brown sugar flavours that emerge from the liquid as it caresses your tongue.

Although Equiano is a naturally sweet rum with no added sugar or spices, it has a medium to sweet ending with touches of oak, anise, sweet pepper with a hint of bitter orange peel.


Equiano rum is a premium blend of aged rums from Barbados and Mauritius, named after Olaudah Equiano, a prominent African writer and abolitionist. The unique blend is created to celebrate the diversity of cultures that came together to make the rum possible.

The Barbados rum is from Foursquare distillery and is aged for 8 years in ex-bourbon casks, while the Mauritian rum is from Gray’s distillery and is aged for 2 years in French oak casks. The two rums are then blended and aged for an additional 6 months in ex-cognac casks, giving Equiano its distinct flavour profile.

The company is committed to supporting ethical and sustainable practices in the production of their rum, and a portion of their profits goes towards supporting social justice causes.

Overall, Equiano rum is a premium and socially conscious choice for rum enthusiasts. Its unique blend of rums from different cultures and aging processes gives it a depth of flavour that is hard to find in other rums.
