A beautifully complex Guyana rum


This spring, we’re turning the spotlight onto a handful of our Own Selection bottles that are perfect for seasonal sipping. In this short audio clip, George Turner – Manager of our Spirits Shop – tells us more about one of his favourite spirits: the 2009 Guyana Rum.

2009 El Dorado, Berry Bros. & Rudd Exclusive Cask, 13-Year-Old Guyana Rum

“I’ve always had a fondness for rum, ever since I was young and my grandfather used to whip up wild tales of pirates – often centred around a bottle of rum. So this was nostalgia in a glass, with lashings of sweet sticky banana, chocolate-covered dates, dark honeyed sugar, orange peel and candied ginger. An exquisite rum.”
