Hamilton 151 OverProof Demerara River Rum
Hailing from Demerara Distillers Limited (DDL) in Guyana, this rum is bottled at just a hair below cask strength. Within the Tiki community, many recipes call for Lemon Hart 151, another rum from the same distillery. When the owners of Lemon Hart 151 ceased production (at least temporarily), demand for it spiked. Fortunately, rum importer Ed Hamilton, who was the U.S. importer of Lemon Hart, stepped in and contracted with DDL to create his own 151 blend. Ed believes this rum equals or exceeds the Lemon Hart 151 and includes older rums up to five years. No sugar or coloring is added. A lower proof version of this rum is available at 86 proof.
