Albion AN 2004 El Dorado 14 Year Old

An Albion rum from the El Dorado Rare Collection.

Interestingly the label states this spirit was distilled in a Continuous Coffey Still. While the Albion distillery did indeed have such a still, when they closed in 1968 it was not transferred to the Uitlvugt distillery, who opted instead for the Four Column Savalle Still when they took over production of the 'Albion style' rums. The wooden continuous still at Uitvlugt was from the Enmore distillery, which closed in 1993. The cask mark "AN" is generally regarded as the mark for "true" Albion rums from its operating days. It is likely that the Enmore still was used here in order to obtain a rum closer in characteristics to the pre-Uitvlugt Albion style.

All of Uitvlugt's stills were transferred to Diamond in 2000 when it closed down. This was distilled therein 2004 and bottled after 14 years in bourbon barrels.

The El Dorado Rare Collection is a subsidiary of Demerara Distillers Limited's European operations, who own Diamond distillery.
