Originally over 50 distilleries operated on the island of Trinidad, by 1950 this number was reduced to eight and today there is only one. However for nearly 100 years Caroni has had large sugar estates and was the major producer of molasses on the island.
Today sadly this is no more as the company has been closed and the stocks dispersed. However we secured some years ago a few barrels of rum distilled from the Providence Estate located near Chaganos just south of the Coporo River. Using water with a low mineral content and distilling the spirit on an old patent still a slightly heavier rum than normal was produced in 1990. We had transferred our stocks to used Port Pipes and this finishing has added a touch of sweetness to the spirit enhancing its depth of flavour. Slightly oily on the palate with smoke and molasses complexity this leads to a lovely, deep flavour which you can enjoy on the rocks or with little water to allow this fine rum to be seen at its best.
