The Rum
El Dorado 15yr is internationally recognized as the benchmark of aged rum in the Caribbean. A blend of marques from four historic stills, this rum has a nose full of coffee beans, candied orange, almonds, chocolate, and vanilla. Beautifully rounded on the palate with lingering flavors of cooked fruit and oaky spice.

The Distillery
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 Ltd. (the parent company of El Dorado Rum and Diamond Reserve) 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 toffeed decadence of the 21yr Special Reserve, to the exotic Caribbean aromas of the Spiced Rum, there is a rum for everyone!
