Cuvée presentation

A Guyana rum distilled at Diamond, the country’s last distillery, in 2004 and bottled after 11 years’ maturation. Kill Devil and Golden Devil are ranges of rum 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 358 bottles.

The distillery Diamond

The Diamond estate was founded in 1670 on the banks of the Demerara River. The distillery, Guyana’‘s last, is now owned by Demerara Distillers Limited (DDL), a business created by the government when it nationalized the country’‘s distilleries in 1974. These distilleries closed one after the other and Diamond recovered their famous wooden stills, with a double still from Port Mourant, a four-column Savalle still from Uitvlugt, a single still from Versailles and a Coffey still from Enmore. Diamond itself is produced in a two-column metal Coffey still installed in the 1950s. After selling to brokers, merchants and blenders for many years, DDL finally launched its own brand, El Dorado, in 1992, featuring bottlings that blend or highlight the rums produced by the distillery’‘s different stills.
