El Dorado's home is in the South American country of Guyana and they're situated in Georgetown on the banks of the Demerara River. Guyana has long been associated with the growing of sugar cane and by extension the production of rum. At one time there were over 300 sugar estates in the country, each with their own still for producing rum. Over the centuries the number of estates shrank until in 1970 there were just 4 remaining who merged to form Demerara Distillers who created the Eldorado brand in 1992. Between then and now El Dorado has won many awards and a dedicated following across the world.
