Want to know why El Dorado consider their Demerara Rum to be so special…?

…Of course you do.

And El Dorado Rum have been kind enough to share this beautifully shot video which highlights and captures all of the unique and incredible aspects that they feel makes El Dorado Rum so very special.

As someone who counts El Dorado 12 Year Old Rum as one of his all time favourite rums, I for one am counting down the days when smell-o-vision becomes available and I can savour the aromas while watching this video.

El Dorado Masterclass with Shaun Caleb Oct 25

El Dorado Rums

This year is the 50th anniversary of Guyana gaining independence from the United Kingdom and El Dorado rum is celebrating.

The Whisky Exchange will be joining in the party with a tasting featuring the celebratory El Dorado Grand Special Reserve, bottled in honour of the anniversary and costing £2,750 a bottle!

Well known for its rich, dark and complex style, El Dorado produces some of my favourite rums. A big hit with whisky drinkers as well as rum fans, it’s dark rum at its best.

Your host for the evening is master distiller Shaun Caleb, who learned the trade under legendary Demerara rum maker George Robinson. A Princeton-educated chemical engineer, Shaun combines a modern take on distilling with the more traditional approach of his mentor, helping him make some of the world’s best rums.

They’ll start with a cocktail and then Shaun will take you through the El Dorado range and the new anniversary release.
