The world famous El Dorado Rums are produced from the diamond distillery on a large expanse of land, once a sugar plantation, on the East Bank of the county of Demerara, Guyana. The story of Demerara Distillers Limited (DDL) begins in 1670 with the amalgamation of local sugar cane producers under the guidance of early European explorers.
The sparsely populated country of Guyana in South America represents the meeting of several distinct cultures over the years - from African to Indian and British to Brasilian - while the vast unspoilt rainforest shelters a plethora of rare wildlife, making Guyana the modern eco-tourist's paradise.
Having the only distillery in the region to survive to the present day, DDL is committed to preserving age-old production techniques and operates the only remaining wooden Coffey still in the world as well as the only wooden pot still - both of which contribute to the distinctive flavour profiles of the rums in the El Dorado stable.
