The highly decorated 12 year old rum is bottled in a design which honours the flasks cast aside by Dutch sailors only to be caught by local sugar planters seeking a vessel for their early sugar cane spirits. El Dorado 12 year old has received numerous awards including Gold medals at the Beverage Tasting Institute of Chicago and ‘Best in Class’ at the International Wine & Spirit Competition. It also featured on the ‘Top 10’ list of the New York Times.
The world famous El Dorado Rums are produced from the Diamond distillery on the East Bank of the county of Demerara, Guyana. The story of Demerara Distillers Limited begins in 1670 with the amalgamation of local sugar cane producers under the guidance of early European explorers.
Having the only distillery in the region to survive to the present day, DDL is also committed to preserving age-old production techniques and operates the only remaining wooden Coffey still in the world as well as the only wooden pot stills – all of which contribute to the distinctive & unique flavour profiles of the rums in the El Dorado stable.
All El Dorado Rums are produced strictly from local sugar cane, and aged in small American oak casks before blending to perfection by the master distiller. The rums are left to marry for at least 3 months ensuring a rich development of flavours & impressive complexity.
Rich amber in colour. Super attractive nose packed with aromas of sugar, honey, banana, toffee, raisin and sultanas. Ripe, rich and balanced flavours and sweetness. After the sweetness, the finish is delightful, elegant and dry.
