Cocktail Hour: Georgetown Daiquiri

Posted by Arctic Wolf on May 25, 2018

The Diamond Distillery sits at East Bank next to the Demerara River near Georgetown, Guyana. The Distillery is home to Demerara Distillers Limited (DDL), the producers of El Dorado Rum.

Recently I embarked on a cocktail series where I am attempting to produce a signature cocktail for many of the El Dorado Premium Rums which I have enjoyed over the past 10 years. A few weeks ago I published my signature cocktail for the El Dorado 3 Year Old Cask Aged Rum (The Caribbean Queen), and today I am sharing my signature cocktail for the El Dorado 8 Year old Cask Aged Rum. This cocktail combines the complimentary flavours of orange and chocolate with the premium El Dorado Rum. It is named for the City of Georgetown, which lies just to the south of Diamond Distillery.

Note: Here is a link to my recently revisited review of the El Dorado 8 Year Old Rum:

Review: El Dorado 8 Year Old Cask Aged Rum

“… The rum exits with a glow of cinnamon and wood spices and flavours of delicious butterscotch. The butterscotch fades to bitter treacle, and the spicy glow remains well after the rum is swallowed. Near the very end of the taste experience, the rum begins to ooze bittersweet chocolate …”
