An extremely rare creature, this rum is rich, smooth and mellow with soft syrupy mouth-feel and subtle notes of caramel and heavy fruit cake. An after-dinner treat for sipping slowly and sparingly
A very limited edition for the connoisseur who appreciates the best in the world of spirits.
An extremely rare creature and a rare experience to savour. Created to mark the turn of the millennium, 25 Year Old Vintage Reserve is presented in an appropriately distinctive decanter to treasure or to give with pleasure.
This exquisite vintage rum possesses a silky smoothness which challenges the oldest cognac. The constant ambient warmth and tropical conditions of Demerara dramatically hasten the maturation process – producing a spirit that is the equivalent of one aged for many more years in a cooler climate.
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 toffee’d decadence of the 21yr Special Reserve, to the exotic Caribbean aromas of the Spiced Rum, there is a rum for everyone!
