Uitvlugt is a village on the west bank of the Demerara River. In the 17th-century sugar cane estates in Guyana were producing their own rum. Uitvlugt distillery was established in 1750 and known for heavy style rums, thanks to their double wooden pot stills. However, sharp fluctuations in sugar prices saw distilleries merging together in 1970.

Only 4 distilleries remained in Guyana, and 11 sugar factories down from an excess of 200 in the 17th century. Demerara Distillers Limited continues to use the four-column metal French Savalle Still inherited from the Uitvlugt Estate. This still is characterised by a pronounced sweet, sugar cane nose combined with a dry medium-bodied flavour
