The El Dorado range of rums, often referred to as the "Liquid Gold of Guyana", are a premium range of rums, produced by Demerara Distillers. In 1992, the company introduced its El Dorado range of rums to the local and international markets. A small allocation has finally arrived in Australia. The distillery has the facilities to produce every type of rum and has assured supplies of its basic raw material, molasses, from locally-grown sugar-cane. Its distilleries are entirely self-sufficient, with their own capability for steam and electricity generation, water supplies, water treatment, quality control and process laboratories. As well as the most up-to-date distillation equipment, Demerara Distillers possesses a wealth of traditional expertise, with old-style Demerara pot stills, and patent rum and alcohol stills. The last fully operating rectangular wooden Coffey still in the Western world continues to be used for the production of the companies finest spirits.

El Dorado Spiced Rum is a full bodied example of the style and employs all natural flavourings to capture a distinctive Caribbean character. Awarded a Silver Medal at the 1999 International Wine and Spirit Competition of London.

Tasting note: Bright deep gold colour. Offers up a delightful amalgam of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove coupled with spicy fruit cake notes. The palate is authentically spicy and true to style with its delicious Christmas fruit cake quality repeating the aroma, this time with a wonderful surge of ginger biscuit towards the finish. Concludes satisfying, vibrant and fresh. Easily one of the best spiced rum we've tasted. 40% Alc./Vol.
