Created on the banks of Demerara, the smooth and uniquely complex El Dorado aged rums represent over 300 years of Caribbean rum crafting. Faithfully continuing to use their original wooden heritage stills, they are masters in skillfully coaxing out rich & diverse characters from within the spirit. They are patient. Very patient. Allowing both time and their unique Demerara climate to take their course, they lay down their oak barrels for decades at a time to imbue El Dorado with unsurpassed dimension and depth. Only when ripe with age are these precious rums then artfully blended, revealing their soul for you to savour and enjoy.
Often referred to as a Gold Rum, an Aged Rum is one that has been aged in barrels, often Ex-Bourbon or White Oak before bottling. As the Rum continues to age, it draws more and more color and flavor from the wood, adding both body and complexity to the finished product. Aged Rums can be sipped neat or added to cocktails. They fall somewhere in between White and Dark Rums in terms of their respective strength of flavor.
