Refreshingly unique, Equiano Light is an exceptional blend of lightly aged molasses rum from the Caribbean, fused with fresh sugar cane juice rum from Africa. Challenging the ideas we have of rum, our exciting offering elevates the category and enriches the taste profile of an often-underrated spirit, with a sophistication you might expect from a darker rum.

Equiano is a multi-award winning rum company; a collaboration between two unique distilleries on two different continents, marrying the best from both the Eastern and Western hemispheres, to bring something entirely new to a centuries old craft.

Tasting notes

medium sweet taste of ripe sugarcane, more tropical fruit and citrus peel, layered with green apples, pears and hints of vanilla and light oak on the palate. The experience is light bodied with the natural, subtle sweetness of exotic fruits.

The Liquid

Equiano Light is refreshingly unique, it is an exceptional blend of lightly aged molasses rum from the Caribbean, fused with fresh sugar cane juice rum from Africa. Once again, challenging the ideas and expectations we have of rum, this exciting offering elevates the category and enriches the taste profile of an often-underrated spirit, silencing any notion that white rums lack the sophistication of their darker counterparts.

Continuing to celebrate the legacy of Olaudah Equiano, Equiano Light is inspired by the theme of enlightenment, a period where his acclaimed memoirs, 'The Interesting Narrative of Olaudah Equiano', played a pivotal role in shaping positive change.

We proudly grant 5% of global company profits & $2 of every bottle purchased to ground level Freedom + Equality organisations annually. Celebrating an extraordinary freedom fighter who changed history for all of us.
