product Details

Enmore 1988 Compagnie des Indes 30 Year Old / Germany

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.

Bottled in November 2018 by Compagnie des Indes from single cask #GYAG36.
