At the moment we produce about 10 straight distillates from the stills.

Sorry, I do not know these rums. Our rums are identified by the EL DORADO brand.

Thanks for clearing that up, but can you explain to me..i thought that Demerara distillers made the El dorado rums and these other Demerara rums which also are said to be from the Demerara distillers?? i get a bit confused here..

Quote from other site for instance:
..and more rums and also from demerara distillers which also carries the El Dorado lines are some interesting rums like for example Port morant…"

So if these other demeraras are not yours, i wonder who`s?

Their aromas and congener levels - these make them unique in their flovours

These rums might be rums distilled by DDL but sold as bulk rum hence still being produced in Demerara. I'll try to find out and let you know.

Your participation on this forum truly is a great pleasure. Thank You!
I hope that you don't mind my questions, but the highly distinctive flavors presented by DDL are so far from all others that there must be many determining factors.

To what extent are these levels determined by the amount of lees used versus type of still?

We do not use lees to give us flovours. We distill fresh fermented solution. In addition to the stills, the environment in Guyana is also a major contributor to the uniqueness of the El Dorado rums. It should be noted that Guyana molasses is used elsewhere in the Caribbean but this distinctive characteristics of the Demerara rum have never been achieved in these adapted environment.

Can you flesh out an overview of the age statements for the El Dorado line?
All of our rums are at minimun the age indicated on the bottle - that is it can be older but not younger.

The wooden stills are made of local hard wood.
The continuous still is made up of two columns and each column is made up of a number of rectangular frames stacked on top of each other and bolted down. The rectifier has cooling / heating coils in about half of the sections. It is similar in structure to the one initally constructed in 1832 by Aneas Coffey, the Irish excise officer.
We have 2 wooden pot stills - one is a single wooden pot and the other is a double wooden pot. The difference in the pots, other than in the number of pots, is the quality of the product they produce - the single pot is lighter mildly flavoured with a thinge of sweetness and fusel oils where as the double pot is much heavier, robust with a good tone of fusel oil.
I would have love to grace your eyes with photographs of models of the wooden continuous and double wooden pot stills but the site is not permitting me to send photos in the replies.
