Rumbrand produced by DemeraraDistillers in Guyana. One of the smoothest tasting rums available, this rum is ideally consumed straight upor on the rocks.
Demerara Distillers is known not just for the production but also for the marketing of its rums. In 1992, the company introduced its El Dorado brand of rums to the local and international markets by focusing on the well-known legend surrounding its name. The story tells of explorers who traveled to
Guianain search of a fabled golden city known as El Dorado. The tale describes a king who wore a fine dust of gold all over his body; to the explorers he appeared to be made of gold. The legend continues to describe the king's city ( Manoa, in Rupununi, in the heartland of Guyana) as being constructed of pure gold, just like its king [ [http://www.demrum.com/rums/rums.cfm Award winning premium rums & alcohol - Demerara Distillers Ltd ] ] .
