Enmore 1990 Alambic Classique 28 Year Old

The Enmore sugar estate was established by Edward Henry Porter in the early 19th century after he inherited and converted his father’s cotton plantation on the east bank of the Demerara river. Once one of many in the area, by the time the government in Guyana had begun to nationalise and consolidate the country’s rum production in 1974, it was one of only four remaining. The traditional still at Enmore was the historic two-column wooden coffey still, constructed back in 1880. Modelled almost exactly after the first continuous still patented by Aeneas Coffey in 1832, it is constructed from Greenheart wood, which is native to Guyana and is mostly used in boat-building due to its ability to remain strong while constantly wet. The wood is also well suited to distilling, stripping spirit of sulphites in the same manner that copper does. Enmore also received the a single wooden pot still when the Versailles distillery closed in 1978. When Enmore was shuttered in 1994, both of these were moved to Uitvlugt, and are now in operation as “Heritage Stills” at Diamond, the last remaining rum producer in the country.

This rum was distilled in 1990 and matured in single cask #18406 for 28 years before being bottled in 2018. One of 191 bottles.

Alambic Classique are a German wholesaler and importer based in Bad Wörishofen, Germany. Established in 1981, the company deals in speciality spirts including whisky, rum, cognac, armagnac and more. The company started bottling its own brands in 2005. Single malts from Ben Nevis and Ledaig have always been firm favourites, and the portfolio also includes Single Cask, Small Batch, Double-Matured and Very Old vintage bottlings from many different distilleries. A lesser known bottler, Alambic Classique have targeted specialist retailers and small restaurants to represent their releases, which over the years has made them difficult to come by.
