El Dorado 8 Year Rum starts with the story of Demerara Distillers, which started in 1670 when every sugar estate had its own rum still, and a group of sugar cane producers formed an exporting co-operative. This early production of rum for sailors was the beginning of the company today.
From over 300 sugar estates to one company! In the 17th and 18th centuries, there were in excess of 200 small distilleries operating in Guyana, each attached to the existing sugar plantations, each with its own special blend of rum. However, following the years of consolidation and amalgamation, there remains today just the one unrivaled distillery at Plantation Diamond on the East Bank of Demerara – wholly owned and operated by Demerara Distillers Limited.
