Crafted richer, aged deeper.
Drawing on 300 years of craft, passion and wisdom, our rum-making legacy is world renowned. With our original distilling equipment and heritage stills, we have combined the traditional with the technology of today, capturing every ounce of our rich history in the full expression of El Dorado Rums.
We take pride in every single detail, producing award-winning rum in small batches.
It is all these things that give our rum its soul.
The first stage of rum production begins with the fermentation process which can last up to 26 hours. This entails the addition to the molasses of yeasts, specially cultured under controlled conditions of temperature and brix (sugar content). As a result, uncrystallised sugars are converted into alcohols to produce a ‘fermenting wash’ which is constantly monitored and maintained within specified parameters that allow unique flavours to develop. The resulting fermented wash which contains around 7% alc.vol. is ready for distillation.
