El Dorado Cask Aged 3 Year White Rum
The evolution of rum distillation dates back nearly 400 years. Upon arriving in Guyana in 1498, Christopher Columbus began planting sugar cane. 150 years later the Dutch came to Guyana and established the first settlements of Essequibo and Berbice, introducing the cultivation of sugar cane along the coastal plain and the banks of the great rivers. At its peak Guyana was home to over 300 sugar estates with distilleries, each producing their own signature rums. Over the years these 300 sugar estates were whittled down to one lone estate and distillery, “Plantation Diamond,” located on the east bank of the Demerara River.
