Item Description

" An International Gold Medal Winner with a golden character.
An elegant multi-award winning rum, El Dorado 12 Year Old typifies the smooth mellow sweetness of Demerara Rums . Savour it straight, on the rocks or in a classic Mai Tai cocktail.
A blend of specially selected aged rums, the youngest being no less than 12 years old, it is a combination of the Enmore and Diamond Coffey stills and the Port Mourant double wooden pot still, blended to perfection and aged in old bourbon oak casks.
Tasting Notes:
Lush tropical fruit and spice nose with hints of honey and dark sugar. Round, mellow, full bodied palate with rich flavours of fruit and spice. The finish is delightful, elegant and dry.
“Hedonistic and well balanced”

The evolution of rum distillation dates back nearly 400 years. Upon arriving in Guyana in 1498, Christopher Columbus began planting the soon-to-be cash crop, sugar cane. 150 years later the Dutch came to Guyana and established the first settlements of Essequibo and Berbice, introducing the cultivation of sugar cane along the coastal plain and the banks of the great rivers.

At its peak Guyana was home to over 300 sugar estates with distilleries, each producing their own signature rums. Over the years these 300 sugar estates were whittled down to one lone estate and distillery, “Plantation Diamond,” located on the east bank of the Demerara River.

Today, Demerara Distillers (the parent company of El Dorado Rum) operates that last remaining distillery. Plantation Diamond houses 8 stills, some of which are the oldest operating stills in the world. These stills are all completely different in composition (wood, double wood, copper, etc...) and size, all yielding entirely different distillates that lead to the complexity that is El Dorado Rum.

El Dorado boasts a full line of premium rum, with the El Dorado 15yr Special Reserve being internationally recognized as the benchmark in its category. Similarly to cognac, the age on a bottle of El Dorado rum indicates the youngest spirit found in the bottle. From the 3yr, charcoal filtered white rum (best white rum ever!!!), mocha and toffee’d decadence of the 21yr Special Reserve, to the exotic Caribbean aromas of the Spiced Rum, there is a rum for everyone.
