The Demerara Distillers is proudly known for its unmissable rums produced in the Republic of Guyana. Thanks to Christopher Columbus, shortly after the discovery of America, the cultivation of sugar canes took root in Guyana, whose refining gives the world the excellent rum. The territory of Demerara is particularly fertile, as it is crossed by one of the longest rivers on the planet: the Rio Demerara. On its banks is in fact cultivated one of the best types of sugar cane in the world, making the rums produced in this region a category apart from the varied and complex universe of the distilled dessert.
Despite having a three-century tradition behind it, Demerara Distillers is a relatively young distillery, born from the merger of the various distilleries and cane-producing farms in the area. The different stills used (between continuous and discontinuous if they count as many as 12!) Are the original ones used already centuries ago by different distilleries and still in perfect operating conditions. For example, the use of the Double Wooden Pot Still (Versailles) gives a full-bodied and rich flavor; the Wooden Coffey Still (known as Enmore) guarantees medium-bodied fruity and rum flavors; the French Savalle Still (Albion) finally produces rum that varies from a light to a strong body. The Demerara Distillers also has the largest selection of rum over 12 years in the world.
Among its products, the legendary El Dorado and the "Demerara - Velier" deserve special mention. Velier is in fact the only company in the world with the ability to search and select the old barrels of the distillery, thanks to the strong friendship between Luca Gargano and Yesu Persaud, patron of the Demerara. These "original bottlings" are selections of rums from the single Demerara stills, usually in very limited quantities and bottled at full strength. The rums produced by Demerara Distillers are considered the best expressions of aged rum in the tropical climate of Guyana. A rum not to be missed for rum lovers and collectors from all over the world.
