product Details

Enmore 2002 Rum Nation Small Batch

Rum Nation was founded in 1999 by Fabio Rossi, CEO of Rossi & Rossi and modelled after his highly successful whisky bottling company, Wilson & Morgan. Since its inception it has earned a good reputation for producing some excellent quality and value drinking rums, especially at the premium end of the spectrum. 

This is a 2002 vintage Demerara rum, produced on the Enmore "heritage still" at Diamond distillery. Bottled from casks #77 and 82 in 2016 as part of the Small Batch Rare Rums series.

Established around 1670, the Diamond Estate is the only remaining rum distiller in Guyana. Located on the east bank of the Demerara river, the distillery is operated by Demerara Distillers Ltd (DDL), the company created by the government in Guyana as it attempted to consolidate the nation’s rum production. This began in 1974 and culminated with the closure of Uitvlugt in 1999, which saw Guyana’s “Heritage Stills” moved from there to Diamond. This was distilled on the Enmore wooden coffey still, also known as EHP. 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. The Enmore still has been producing rum since 1880 and is the last of its kind still in operation. Modelled almost exactly after the first continuous still patented by Aeneas Coffey in 1832, the Enmore still is so-called because it started its life on the 200 year old sugar estate of the same name. It was moved to Uitvlugt after the Enmore distillery closed in 1994.
