Description

Caroni 1998 Calypso, Music! Series

Calypso is a style of Afro-Caribbean music characterized by highly rhythmic and harmonic vocals that originated in Trinidad and Tobago in 18th century and spread to the rest of the Caribbean Antilles and Venezuela. Calypso always played important role in political expression, and also served to document the history of home country, thanks to the rich song texts.

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…
