From the former British Guiana comes this rum, which used to be part of naval rum. Demerara was one of the original colonies assembled into the colony “British Guyana,” which today is called “Guyana.” The Demerara colony was located in the area around the Demerara River, and the capital was Georgetown. Demerara is today one of the three districts of Guyana. The other two are Berbice and Essequibo. Demerara is also the common name for a particular type of raw cane sugar that is often used for baking and in coffee. It usually has a brown color, which is the natural color of sugarcane. It has been given its name because of the type cane, derived initially from the Demerara colony.
