The molasses used at Demerara Distillers Ltd comes from Guyana and contained 65% dissolved sugar, one of the highest sugar contents of any molasses found in the Caribbean. The high sugar content is attributed to the age of the Guyanese sugar mill.
This rum was distilled in the historic wooden Coffey still aka EHP (Edward Henry Porter) Wooden Still. Originally built in the 19th century at the Enmore Estate, the two-column wood still looks like a stack of wood beams with plumbing and followed the innovation of the Irish inventor, Aeneas Coffey. The wood is 'greenheart' a prized tropical wood that resists rot, termites and is heavier than water.

After distillation in 2012, this rum was put in used bourbon and whiskey barrels then shipped to the UK where it continued to mature until it was shipped to the US for bottling as part of my Single Cask Strength Collection in August 2021.
