Angostura Rum Distillery
The history of the renowned Angostura distillery dates back to the year 1824. At that time a German doctor named Johann Gottlieb Benjamin Siegert, who served at the time in the Venezuelan Army as the Surgeon-General created a mixture of aromatic herbs and spices which he called "Amargo Aromatico". Later the concoction became known as Angostura bitters.
Johann Gottlieb Benjamin Siegert founded his company in the town of Angostura, which today bears the name of Bolivar City.
In 1876 Benjamin's younger brother and his son took over the management of the company. The seat of Angostura was initially in Venezuela and eventually moved to the Caribbean Island of Trinidad.© angosturarum.com© angostura.com
The formulation of the Bitter has not changed a bit since the first vial making a special dent in Caribbean history. In addition to the extraordinary Bitter, Angostura also produces top quality Rum today.
In 1945 the Angostura Company purchased a distillery and started producing its own Rum. The Master Distiller John P. Georges controls the manufacturing process of the delicious Rum in a five-fold column still.
