El Dorado Masterclass with Shaun Caleb Oct 09

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.
