Strong yet highly sippable – our favourite combination.

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.

POW! El Dorado 12 Year Old is a bold and spicy Rum that will be a great addition to everyone's drinks cabinet. Blended from aged Rum aged no less than 12 years, but often more, aged exclusively in Bourbon casks. Raw oak follows through with rich molasses notes that keeps you interested, intrigued and all steeped in production that follows centuries old techniques. A great Rum, strong yet highly sippable – our favourite combination.
