El Dorado Rum Rare Collection Skeldon SWR 2000
100% Continuous Blair Still, 100% Tropically Aged in Guyana for at least 18 years, Non-Chill Filtered, Non-Blended.
The SWR Marque used to be produced on a Continuous Blair Still at the Skeldon Sugar Estate.
The Skeldon Distillery was located in the Berbice region along the Corentyne river, close to the Surinam border. In the consolidation process of the Distilleries, the Skeldon Distillery was closed in 1960.
By that time the SWR Marque was successfully replicated on the Continuous Savalle Still, located at Uitvlught Distillery. Upon closure in 1999 of Uitvlught, the Continuous Savalle Still was moved to the Diamond Distillery.
Nose: Dried apricots, raisins, almonds, walnuts and hazelnuts.
Palate: Sweet with honey and vanilla. Very dry and woody at the end, with a bitter ﬁnish.
THE UNIQUE STILLS
Demerara Distillers operates 9 different Rum Stills. With these 9 unique heritage stills our distillery can produce a range of different historic rum Marques, all with unique characteristics. Over the years many distilleries were closed and Demerara Distillers consolidated and preserved the old heritage stills, Marques and traditional skills which make Demerara Rum so distinctive. The Diamond distillery is located on the East bank of the Demerara river. In 2015 and 2017 they released the ﬁrst Rare Collection editions to highlight the 3 Marques from our unique Wooden Stills.
Demerara Distillers is proud to release a third edition of the Rare Collection on 2 other Marques. This third release is based on the Metal Stills of Skeldon (SWR) and Albion (AN).
