Angostura is one of the Caribbean's leading rum producers with a superb collection of rum brands and is the world's market leader for bitters. Besides being a Royal Warrant holder to the Queen of England for its Angostura® aromatic bitters, the company has successfully marketed its iconic bitters globally and has a geographic reach into 164 markets.

"Many of our brands have been around for generations in Trinidad and Tobago, our core rum market. Angostura's international rums have won gold medals at many international competitions in the past decade and have been named 'the world's most awarded rum range' by the Rum Masters. In 1985, Angostura Limited became the proud recipient of a National Award, the Humming Bird Gold Medal, for its contribution to industry in Trinidad and Tobago, the first company to be so honoured."
Master Distiller

John Georges

John joined Angostura in 1982 and has worked in many different roles in the production of fine rum. In his own words, John has "been in and around the manufacture and ageing of rum for more than a quarter of a century".

Always experimenting with different ways to age our rums, John has pioneered new premium aged blends including the multi-award winning Angostura International Rum Collection. It is testament to John’s skill that he has doubled the rum distillation output at Angostura while still maintaining the finesse required to produce super premium brands.

As much Art as Science, John learned much from his predecessors such as Tommy Gatcliffe, a pioneer in Trinidad rum production, and today a new generation of distillers and spirit crafters look to John for their inspiration.

A native Trinidadian, John was educated at the University of the West Indies where he graduated with a BSc in Chemical Engineering. John was a road runner and a hockey player when he was younger but now gets his pleasure and exercise from hiking. He is married to Carmen and they have two children.
