El Dorado Rum is also known as the "Liquid Gold of Guyana." Demerara Distillers started in 1670 when every sugar estate in Guyana had its own Rum still and a group of sugar cane producers formed an exporting co-operative. This early production of Rum for sailors was the beginning of the Demerara. Guyana had as many as 300 producers at any given time over the years.

El Dorado 15 Year Old is something a little bit special. It was voted the Best Rum in the World at the International Wine & Spirits Challenge four years in a row. Hailed by virtually everyone in the Rum world as being out of this world, it truly is a crowd pleaser. It takes Rum to another level and away from some of the younger, less refined Rums out there.

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.’
Next time you have a tipple of Rum you can say that you're tapping the Admiral. This intriguing phrase comes from the great Admiral Nelson who was killed in the battle of Trafalgar off of Spain. The story is that his body was preserved in Rum to be shipped back to England but, when the barrel arrived, some of the Rum was missing and said to have been siphoned off by some desperate or unknowing sailors. It's a great story but most likely false.
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.  
Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
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).
