The story of rum in Guyana started in the 1640’s with the introduction of sugar cane by the early European settlers. However, the Demerara Rum production was only laid down when distilling was introduced into the new territories by the British in the 1650s.
From the launch of the El Dorado range of Demerara Rums in 1992, the brand has gone from strength to strength, epitomising the unique quality of the true taste of Demerara.
It was in that year that Demerara Distillers Limited became the first rum producer in the world to market a premium quality aged rum: El Dorado 15 Year Old Special Reserve. Since then this superb spirit has become the internationally recognised benchmark for aged rums and the company has gone on to develop an unrivalled portfolio of Age Statement Rums.
