El Dorado 50th Anniversary Special Reserve Edition Rum
The release of this Grand Special Reserve Rum marks Guyana’s 2016 celebrations of the Golden Jubilee Independence Anniversary.
This 50thAnniversary Special Edition is a blend of rums that have been aged in oak casks for up to half of a century. Two-thirds of the 50th Anniversary Blend was distilled on the vintage double wooden pot still, and laid down in oak barrels in 1966 – a fitting tribute to our nation and our unique heritage of distilling.The Special Edition blend was augmented by almost equally old rums in the style of the historic Albion, Skeldon and La Bonne Intention Estates which were all distilled and aged in oak between 1966 and 1976; these contributed 25%. A final 10% of the 50th Anniversary Blend is drawn from rums aged in 1983, the year Demerara Distillers Ltd. was incorporated.
The El Dorado 50th Anniversary Special Edition is presented in a distinctive crystal decanter nestled in a beautifully crafted presentation box. Each bottle is individually numbered, and is adorned by a specially commissioned 50th Anniversary Gold Medallion that was crafted by Guyanese jewellers in 18 Carat premium Guyanese Gold, a tribute to Guyana’s rich mining history.
Finished with a soupcon of aged pot still rums surviving from our heritage Double Wooden Pot and a since-discontinued John Dore copper kettle resulting in a rum that is full bodied and complex with notes of co ee, bittersweet dark chocolate and a hint of orange peel.
Packaging: 600 bottles will be produced. Each package are individually numbered and signed by our Master Blender, fashioned with an 18 carat collectible gold medallion cra‑ed in premium Guyanese gold, and presented in a distinctive crystal decanter.
