El Dorado is a range of Demerara rums produced in Guyana. Established in 1992, the brand has won many awards and fans worldwide, with rums ranging from three to 21 years of age; and the 15 Year Old proving especially popular. Unlike solera-aged rums, the age statement relates to the youngest rum in the bottle.
An elegant multi-award winning rum, El Dorado 12 Year Old typifies the smooth mellow sweetness of Demerara Rums. Savour it straight, on the rocks or in a classic Mai Tai cocktail.
A blend of specially selected aged rums, the youngest being no less than 12 years old, it is a combination of the Enmore and Diamond Coffey stills and the Port Mourant double wooden pot still, blended to perfection and aged in old bourbon oak casks.
