El Dorado 12 Year Old Rum

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. Lush tropical fruit and spice nose with hints of honey and dark sugar. Round, mellow, full bodied palate with rich flavours of fruit and spice. The finish is delightful, elegant and dry.

  • Product Description

    “El Dorado' was a legendary King from Guyana who was fabled to have his body dusted in Gold who also lived in a city made of it too. Whilst it may not be the 1st place that springs to mind when you think of Rum, it has been produced there since the mid 17th Century. Whilst Sugar Cane had been planted in Guyana for a number of years, the distillation process was not known in the country until around 1650. Perhaps unsurprisingly once the process was fully understood this new alcoholic drink was so well received that by 1670 it is said that every single sugar estate on the island had started to distil.
