Demerara Distillers Limited

The story of Demerara Distillers started in 1670 when every sugar estate had its own rum still, and a group of sugar cane producers formed an exporting co-operative. This early production of rum for sailors was the beginning of the company today.

From over 300 sugar estates to one company! 

In the 17th and 18th centuries, there were in excess of 200 small distilleries operating in Guyana, each attached to the existing sugar plantations, each with its own special blend of rum. However, following the years of consolidation and amalgamation, there remains today just the one unrivalled distillery at Plantation Diamond on the East Bank of Demerara - wholly owned and operated by Demerara Distillers Limited.

At Diamond, the standards and methods of this age-old industry have been maintained and the unique original heritage stillsand equipment have been preserved in working order – all operating in tandem with the most up to date production technology.
