This single barrel bottling uses rum distilled in El Dorado’s four column French Savalle still to recreate to character of this previously forgotten mark.
Back in the day when each sugar cane plantation in Guyana had a distillery producing their own rum, a unique mark was used to identify the rum from each distillery. ICBU was the mark for the Dutch owned Uitvlught distillery.
