Caroni

Feel the rhythm of Caribbean carnival with glass of Caroni rum in your hand!

The Caroni distillery was located on Trinidad and its home country is known, among the others, from music and carnival. With these three editions we would like to pay tribute to three music genres which were created or developed on this beautiful and exotic island. The label of each edition presents different character referring to particular type of music (carnival dancer, parang singer, and man playing on traditional steelpan). Moreover, the colours of the labels and boxes refer to the colours of flag of the Trinidad and Tobago, because Caroni was a state distillery.

  2. About Caroni distillery

    Caroni is a famous closed distillery from Trinidad Island. It produced magnificent heavy rums from 1918 to 2002 and was state plant, with its own sugar refinery that guaranteed its supply of local high quality cane sugar. Only really small part of production was bottled under Caroni own label and for a long time the distillery remained known only to a handful of connoisseurs, who loved its unique profile. Nowadays, Caroni rums are well-known as complex and rich spirits, and with interesting history of the brand build the mystical status of the distillery. Unfortunately, in every year the number of Caroni casks which remained to present days decline and some part of its heritage disappear irretrievably. When the last cask will be bottled? No one knows…

In Trinidad, traditional parang music is largely performed around Christmastime, when singers and instrumentalists travel from house to house in the community.
