El Dorado 15 Year Old Rum
This rum has been laid down in oak barrels for at least
15 years then artfully blended using the Enmore and Diamond Coffey Stills, the
Port Mourant Double Wooden Pot Still and the Versailles Single Wooden Pot Still
- for you to savour and enjoy.
Full nose packed with dark coffee, candied orange,
almonds, dark chocolate, pepper and rich vanilla. Beautifully rounded palate
with a great spread of flavours: grilled tropical fruit with smooth oaky spice
– silky, vibrant and moderately full-bodied.
The county of Demerara in Guyana has been steeped in the
history of sugar and rum production since the 17th century. Today, Demerara
Distillers Limited operates the last remaining distillery in Guyana at Plantation
Diamond on the East Bank of the Demerara River, after having consolidated all
the old original stills and marques which make Demerara Rum so distinctive.
The story of rum in Guyana started in the 1640s with the
introduction of sugar cane by the early European settlers. By 1670, the
foundation of Demerara Rum production was laid down with the establishment of
distilling into the new territories by the British.
