Along with the wooden stills we also have three 2 column metal coffey stills and two 4 columns savalle stills.

They are quite unique in their flavours - the single barrel ICBU is from the 4 column savalle still, light and has a sugary type of aroma, the single barrel EHP is from the wooden coffey still, medium and has a fruity aroma, the single barrel PM is from the double wooden pot still, heavy and has more woody potty aroma, more like a cognac. So you see we have different rums for different individuals depending on their taste. Probably if you had known what to expect you would not have been disappointed.
It was the EHP that I tried and the LCBO carries. Reading your descriptions, I think I would have preferred the PM version. Thanks for the great info.

You can't keep a good rum down is right. I know with the El Dorado 21yo, the LCBO shows it being discontinued (currently with zero inventory) but they have ensured me that they will have it at Christmas time. The 15yo is stocked all year.

What a pleasure it is to enjoy an illuminating discourse with one intimately familiar with the process at this legendary rum distillery family. Thanks for contributing some time and knowledge to rum enthusiasts here online.

I understand Demerara has significant stock of bulk aged rums available and supplies product for numerous private labels. Is that true?

I have a start up company. I have an amazing marketing idea, name, investment capital, and bottling company. All I need now is the rum. Does Demerara work with providing new companies with rum? I love the demerara rums and have family in guyana. Please contact me asap.

Default Welcome

I was actually interested in contacting Demerara. I have an amazing idea for a start up here in New York. I have plenty of investment capital, a bottling company, and a great marketing plan. Now all I need is the rum. Does demerara work with start-ups and provide rums for outside companies. Any of your assistance would be highly appreciated.

I've been away from the forum for over a week now, but I wanted to join the chorus of "Welcomes" and praise for the El Dorado rums...which reminds me that my 15yo is getting low...

I enjoyed a glass of ED12 with a Padron 1964 last night. What a screaming combo!

We have warehousing capacity of about 60000 to 65000 barrels. Most of these rums are for our marks but we do sell small quantities to private labels.
