Caroni is a famous closed distillery in Trinidad Island. It produced magnificent heavy rums from 1918 to 2002 and was a state plant, with its own sugar refinery that guaranteed its supply of local high quality cane sugar. Actually, only 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. With interesting history, the brand built 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…
Rapso is a form of Trinidadian music that grew out of the social unrest of the 1970s. Black Power and unions grew in the 1970s, and rapso grew along with them. Modern Rapso music can be described today as the Trinbagonian equilevent of what we know as American Rap music.
