Returned servicemen from the Great War could look forward to government grants of pastoral freehold. West Australia's Willyabrup Valley was such a place, just a short walk from the balmy beaches of Indian Ocean, it offered the veterans excellent potential for agriculture. The fertile lands of Sussex Vale were originally established to animal husbandry by the discharged troopers, generations of livestock enriched the soils and it was astutely sown to vines in 1973. Fortuitously placed at the very heart of the Australian west's most illustrious estates, it continued to occupy the thoughts of neighbouring Howard Park's chief winemaker, until he acquired the property and relaunched a softly spoken range of the most exquisite wines. Aspirants of the blue blooded styles from Margaret River will be delighted, redolent reds which bloom with berries and violet cassis, powerfully structured whites with substantial palates and crystalline fruit, chiselled and refined, the veteran vines of Hay Shed Hill...

Angostura 1919 Rum 700ml CONFIRM AVAILABILITY

Rums
A rich Anejo made from a blend of light and heavy molasses Rums, aged for a minimum of eight years in charred American oak bourbon barrels. In 1932 a great fire destroyed the Trinidad & Tobago Government Rum Bond. Joseph Bento Fernandes, master blender and owner of Fernandes Distillery, seized the moment and bought the charred casks only to discover that the Rum within had aged and developed magnificently. This prize Rum was artisanally blended and called 1919 Super Premium Rum, so named for the very year it was casked.

Opportunity is often found embedded in risk. The demand for 1919 Rum spread through a most interesting set of circumstances. Trinidad & Tobago airmen serving on the battlefronts of Europe during World War II were regularly supplied with 1919 Super Premium Rum, which they shared amongst their colleagues in the other armed forces. 1919 Super Premium Rum came to symbolize the spirit of Trinidad & Tobago. As with all good things, it's just a matter of time
A rich, golden amber hue with good clarity. 1919 exudes a complex bouquet brimming over with aromas of cocoa and molasses, caramel and vanilla. It is remarkably soft and well rounded as the Rum glides over the palate without a hint of harshness or bite. Within moments it opens up, revealing a generous and long lasting array of toasty flavours. The finish is warm and relaxing
