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.
El Dorado 15 Year Old marries spirits from the Enmore and Diamond Coffey stills, the Port Mourant double wooden pot still and the Versailles single wooden pot still. All the tasty spirits are blended and then aged in bourbon oak casks before bottling. This was rated the best rum in the world at the International Wine and Spirit Competition four years running, and for good reason.
