Cuvée presentation

An Enmore distilled in 1990 with the distillery’s Coffey still and matured for 25 years. Kill Devil and Golden Devil are ranges of rumq bottled by Edition Spirits, an independent bottler created by Stewart Laing’s sons Scott and Andrew Laing. They soon teamed up with their father again after he left Douglas Laing, creating Hunter Laing, which owns Edition Spirits and Langside Distillers. A limited edition of 286 bottles.

The distillery Enmore

The Enmore sugar plantation was set up in the early 19th century by Edward Henry Porter on the banks of the Demerara River. When the Guyanese government nationalized the production of rum in 1974, it was one of the last distilleries still in operation, alongside Diamond and Uitvlugt. The two wooden Coffey stills built from Chlorocardium Rodiei (Greenheart)—a wood generally used for shipbuilding due to its good water resistance and which offers properties similar to copper for purifying sulphur compounds—date back to the 1880s and are based on the model invented by Aeneas Coffey in 1832. They were transferred to Uitvlugt when the distillery closed in 1994, then to Diamond when Uitvlugt closed in 1999. This was also the case for the Enmore wooden pot still that Enmore had recovered after the distillery of the same name closed in 1978.
