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.

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.

El Dorado

El Dorado

El Dorado Rum is a Rum brand produced by Demerara Distillers in Guyana.

One of the smoothest tasting rums available, Demerara Distillers is known not just for the production but also for the marketing of its rums which focuses on the well-known legend surrounding its name. The story tells of explorers who travelled to Guyana in search of a fabled golden city known as El Dorado. The tale describes a king who wore a fine dust of gold all over his body; to the explorers he appeared to be made of gold. The legend continues to describe the king's city (Manoa, in Rupununi, in the heartland of Guyana) as being constructed of pure gold, just like its king.

The flavours of the oak wood from the barrels and the complexities of the interaction between wood and spirit are greatly enhanced by the tropical climate of Guyana. The ageing process there is greatly speeded up by the high humidity and steady temperature – resulting in an El Dorado 8 year old rum, for instance, having a maturity of an older rum produced in colder climates.
