Single Still Rum - Port Mourant (PM), El Dorado
Using molasses from coveted Demerara sugar which is exclusively grown in an equatorial river basin below sea level, El Dorado and Diamond Reserve are produced at Diamond Distillers Limited (DDL), the last Demerara rum distillery in Guyana, and by extension, the world. Operating since 1670, Demerara Distillers now use the oldest functioning stills in the world, all completely different in composition and size, yielding entirely different distillates that lead to the complexity for which these rums are known. Similarly to cognac, the age on a bottle of Demerara rum indicates the youngest spirit found in the bottle. From the lightly aged Diamond Reserve White Rum, to the charcoal-filtered El Dorado 3 Year, to the decadence of the El Dorado 21 Year Special Reserve, to the exotic, Caribbean aromas of the Spiced Rum, there is a rum here for everyone!

Single Barrel Rum-PM
Demerara Distillers benefits from being able to operate the last two original Wooden Pot Stills (one Single and one Double) in the world. Over 250 years old, and originally used to produce the Demerara Navy Rums in the past, they are nowadays often referred to by their old names of Demerara Vat Stills.
The Double Wooden Pot Still originated from the Port Mourant Estate, founded in 1732, and was later moved first to Uitvlught and then, in 2000, to Diamond. These two unique copper-necked Stills are valued by blenders and other experts as a source of very heavy bodied, very flavourful and deeply aromatic rums – the ancient Green Heartwood of the Still playing a major role in the development of these distinctive characteristics.
While rum from this Still is used in the blending of other El Dorado rums, the El Dorado PM Marque Single Barrel Rum is a single distillate from the Double Wooden Pot Still from the old Port Mourant Estate. 40% ABV
