product Details

Enmore 2003 Silver Seal 11 Year Old / Rum is Nature

Silver Seal was founded by Ernesto Mainardi in 2000. This was Mainardi's second bottling company after the esteemed Sestane in 1979. Both companies were sold to Massimo Righi, proprietor of Whisky Antique, in 2010. Since then the company has produced a steady stream of high quality rum to add to its sought after back-catalogue.

This is an Enmore still rum from Diamond, distilled in 2003 and bottled by Silver Seal for their Rum is Nature collection.

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.
