product Details

El Dorado 12 Year Old

The El Dorado brand was launched by Demerara Distillers in 1992 with the introduction of the now iconic 15 year old. This had been the long-term aim of the company since the Guyana rum industry was nationalised by the government in 1975, which promptly instructed the first rum to be laid down for ageing the following year. The original releases contained rum produced at Enmore, Uitvlugt and Diamond, however as of 2000, all production has been consolidated at the latter. DDL blends El Dorado using various combinations of marques from Diamond’s rum-producing stills, which include the pair of two-column English coffey stills, installed there in the 1950s and a rarely used high-ester John Dore pot still. These operate alongside the “Heritage Stills” acquired from Uitvlugt in 1999, which are Uitvlugt’s own historic four-column French Savalle stills, the Versailles and Port Mourant wooden pot stills, and the Enmore wooden coffey still, the oldest and last of its kind in the world.
