Zacapa Rum

Zacapa Rum – The Rum that Matures Above the Clouds

Did you know that Zacapa Rum acquires its exceptional qualities thanks in part to the aging that takes place in a unique place in the world? And that, unlike most rums that use molasses, Zacapa rum is produced using the first pressing of virgin sugar cane? Let us discover together the characteristics and secrets of the production of the world’s best-known rum.

Zacapa Rum

The History of Zacapa Rum

Zacapa rum was created in 1976 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the town of Zacapa. Zacapa is a city in Guatemala located about 112 km from Guatemala City. The name Zacapa comes from the Nahuatl (Aztec) language and means “on the river of grass.”

Virgin Sugar Cane Harvesting

Unlike most rums that use molasses, Zacapa Rum is produced using the first pressing of virgin sugar cane. This makes the rum sweeter and softer, and it is at this point that the distinctive characteristics and flavor profile of Zacapa begin to develop.

There is no more suitable place to grow sugarcane than southern Guatemala, thanks to its mineral-rich volcanic soil and the many rivers that nourish the area. The quality of the raw materials is reflected in the depth of Zacapa’s primary aromas and flavors.

The Rum that Matures Above the Clouds

After distillation, Zacapa embarks on an extraordinary journey from the volcano-shaded plains to the head of a valley 2,300 meters (7,545 feet) above sea level. Here, in the cooler, wetter climate of the “House Above the Clouds,” Zacapa acquires its unique qualities and unmistakable flavor profile. The fresh mountain air gently ages the rum, allowing the development of a deep aroma, rich body, full color and intense flavor. At the House Above the Clouds, wooden barrels share their aromas and flavors through the unique “Solera System” aging process.

Zacapa Rum is not just a rum, it is a testament to a tradition of craftsmanship that encompasses the entire production process, from the harvesting of virgin sugar cane to aging above the clouds. Every sip of Zacapa tells the story of a land rich in natural resources and a unique process that gives rum its distinctive characteristics. To taste Zacapa Rum is to immerse oneself in a unique sensory experience that celebrates excellence and a passion for quality.
