El Dorado

This is the flagship products from Demerara Distilleries. They do offer a couple of older versions, like the 21 year old and a rare 25 year old rum. The El Dorado 15 year old rum is a dark rum.The rum is named after the city of El Dorado. The name is based on an Indian chief who founded the golden city, according to the city's legend. Because of the wealth an traditions of the chief, the name El Dorado has come to mean the best that money can buy.
El Dorado Special Reserve. Demerara has established a reputation over the last 300 years for producing the best rums in the world. Matured for at least 15 years in oak casks, this fine rum of great distinction is specially blended to achieve its exquisitely smooth, award-winning character.

Tasting Notes
Colour: Bright golden amber. A well aged spirit.
Aroma: Sweet, molasses, honey with tobacco and toasted oak.
Palate: Starts extremely smooth with a touch of sweetness. The tobacco is still present. The flavour is deep and rich. Finishes smooth with a bit of spiciness.
Notes: This may very well be the best rum I have tried to date. It is ultra smooth with robust flavours and sweet tobacco like flavour. The flavour profile fits what I look for in a rum. Smooth to start, with some sweetness and a smooth spicy finish. What's not to like?
Old Gold
A Trader Tiki original, this one’s a sweet treat with 12-year Aged Demerara Rum, Ginger, Orange, and a touch of Vanilla Extract and spice.
Mai Tai
Trader Vic’s most famous creation, and easily the most recognized tiki drink in the world. This lightly sweet combination of aged Rum, Lime, Curacao and Orgeat put Trader Vic’s on the map.
Zombie, 1950
The most infamous of all Don the Beachcomber’s creations, any more than two and you’ll be joining the living dead with this combination of tropical juices, passion fruit, and plenty of dark and light rums.

Bols Genever !!! Introducing the real white spirit from Holland.

The World’s Most Authentic Spirit is introduced to a new generation of bartenders and drinkers
Amsterdam, 3 September 2008 - Lucas Bols, the world’s oldest distilled spirits brand, is today
reintroducing Bols Genever, a superior old-school Genever created almost two centuries ago, to a
new generation of bartenders and drinkers around the world. This re-launch is in response to a
worldwide demand for authentic ingredients and class cocktails and creates a brand new white
spirits category.
Genever, considered to be one of the ‘original white spirits’, is the number one distilled spirit in
Holland and until recently was only available in selected local markets.

However the reintroduction of the
superior and premium old school Bols Genever in the USA, UK and The Netherlands will introduce modern
day drinkers around the world to this re-emerging and unique spirit category.
The new Bols Genever bottle reflects the spirit’s authenticity, taking inspiration from the traditional Bols
Genever clay jug. This classic shape is contemporised with the use of distinctive and stylish iconic smoked glass,
decorated with authentic Amsterdam handwritten typography, while retaining a nod to history in the form of a
traditional cork closure.
To celebrate the re-launch of this classic spirit, Bols has created a cocktail collection to inspire the bartending
community. The Bols Genever cocktail collection includes original classics such as The Holland House and
The Collins, as well as some great modern classics which combine the taste of 1820 with the plethora of bitters,
fruits, juices and herbs now available to the modern mixologist. With the re-introduction of Bols Genever,
bartenders can now finally recreate these classics as they were meant to taste.
