Ron Zacapa 23 Centenario Sistema Solera RumRon Zacapa 23 Centenario Sistema Solera Rum

Traveling around with Guatemala's fine drops

The production of Zacapa Rum in Guatemala has a long tradition. Allegedly the Mayas have already produced a drink similar to rum. The high-quality sugar cane is grown at an altitude of approx 220m. The production is exclusive and only the first essence "Virgin Sugar Cane Honey" of the pressing is used. The aging of the distillates in old oak barrels in the mountains at 2’300m altitude refines the taste and gives the Zacapa Rum its special note.
Taste: soft and intense with sweet notes of vanilla, honey and sherry as well as spicy notes of caramel and oak wood. Intense, voluminous and round in the mouth.
