The legendary Caroni distillery ceased its activity in 2002, after a long period of production started in Trinidad in 1918, leaving Angostura as the only active distillery on the island. The reserves of this superb Rum have become particularly sought after by independent bottlers for their rich and spicy character, giving rise to a real treasure hunt to grab the old barrels. Rum Nation comes to life in 1999, after having gathered all the experience gained through years of rigorous selection, careful tasting between the Tropic of Cancer and the Equator. The result is an assortment of single origins in limited quantities, real cru, or unique and unforgettable Rums. Belonging to a family active in the import of Scottish Whiskeys, at the end of the 20th century, it was during a trip to Scotland that Fabio Rossi, the current owner of the import and distribution company for spirits "Rossi & Rossi", was attracted by old barrels of Rum from English Guyana and Jamaica. Years later, following a confrontation with Silvano Samaroli, the highly esteemed independent distiller, Fabio Rossi himself created the "Rum Nation" brand. To give a distinctive touch to the individual Rums, Fabio decided to characterize each label with a stamp from the country from which the Rum came, a graphic detail that still today distinguishes Rum Nations. The first bottlings were those of the barrels discovered in Scotland, but subsequently the range was expanded, with distillates coming not only from Guyana and Jamaica, but also from Martinique, Santo Domingo, Barbados, Guatemala, Guadeloupe, and then again from Peru, where in 2004 Fabio discovered a distillery that produces a particularly sweet and delicate Rum, today labeled as "Ron Millonario". A journey, in essence, that since the beginning of the 1990s has never stopped, and still continues today supported by the desire to offer lovers and enthusiasts, unique and inimitable rums, distilled like others not found.
