Demerara has established a reputation over the last 300 years for producing the best rums in the world. El Dorado, which means 'the Golden One' is Guyana's 24 carat offering to the world. Though not quite in the form of ingots, this Golden One is produced in the Demerara Distillery which sits alongside the swaying plantations of tall, sweet cane on the banks of the Demerara river. With its 9 different and original stills (operational from the 18th and 19th century), marques and traditional skills intact, Demerara is in the enviable position of being the only distillery in the world to offer such a variety and range of over 20 different styles of rum. Their unique flavour and taste owes as much to the tropical climate of this lush country of Guyana - which translates from its Amerindian name 'land of many waters' - as to the know-how and traditional wisdom garnered over three centuries of rum production. Spurred on by the universal acceptance of their rum in the international markets, Demerara Distilleries has gone on to develop an unrivalled portfolio of 'Age Statement Rums'.
This fine aged Demerara Rum is produced by master distillers since 1670. Matured for at least 12 years in oak casks, this rum is hand blended to achieve its uniquely smooth, rich character, the quintessence of Demerara style rums. The 12 year is a multi Gold Medal winner with a golden character. A sure delight for the most discerning drinker, it can be savoured on the rocks or in a classic cocktail.
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 and elegant.MRP: Rs.7900
A combination of specially selected aged rums, the youngest rum in this exquisite bottling is 15 years old while some are as old as 25 years. Selected from the rums distilled in Enmore, the world's only surviving wooden column still - Diamond Coffey still, the Port Mourant double wooden pot still and the Versailles single wooden pot still, it is blended to perfection and aged in old bourbon oak casks. This Special Reserve possesses the most intriguing and complex character of any rum in its class; it is truly a connoisseur's sipping rum.
Tasting Notes: Full nose packed with dark coffee, candied orange, almonds, dark chocolate, pepper and rich vanilla. Beautifully rounded palate with a great spread of flavours - grilled tropical fruit with smooth oaky spice. Silky, vibrant and moderately full bodied.MRP: Rs.9900
