The Spirit of Demerara.

In the 17th century European settlers in Guayana were introduced to sugar cane and they began to distil it when the British laid the foundation for Demerara Rum. Soon each of the estates producing sugar cane started to distil Rum from molasses.

From these producers El Dorado obtained three of the oldest stills, each over 200 years old, and used it to procure versatile, rich and fascinating Rums that bare the heritage, quality and soul of the soil and climate of Guayana.

El Dorado 8, one of their youngest expressions, is a blend of pot still and column still Rums and is aged in used Whiskey and Bourbon barrels.

The Diamond Distillery's Port Mourant double wooden pot still, Versailles single wooden pot still, and Enmore Wooden Coffey stills are the only remaining wooden stills left in the entire world.  
A little bit of etymology; nobody really knows where the word Rum comes from. The most popular suggestions are Rum (the Romani word for 'potent'), Rumbullion (an uproar), Saccharum (sugar in Latin), and Rummer (a Dutch drinking glass).
Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
Rum is a sugar cane based spirit, primarily made in the Caribbean and Latin America, but you can really find Rum in many corners of the world.
Rum is why we measure alcohol proof. To make sure Rum wasn’t watered down, it had to be ‘proven’ by soaking gunpowder with it. If it was ‘overproof’ (higher than 57.15 % vol.), then the gunpowder would ignite, but if it wouldn’t, it was ‘underproof.’
If the center of our galaxy had a signature scent, it would be Rum. Yup, astronomers studying a giant cloud in the Milky Way found a substance called ethyl formate, a chemical that smells suspiciously like Rum.
