More Information

Ron Zacapa Centenario is a popular premium rum produced in Guatemala. Made using the concentrated first pressing sugar cane juice, which is called virgin sugar cane honey, rather than molasses and is aged and blended using a unique ageing system based on the solera method

This rum was a speciality Item made for just the owners of Industrias Licoreras (Distillery) for many years. Zacapa was mass created in 1976 to celebrate the centenary of the foundation of Zacapa, a town in eastern Guatemala.It is made using the concentrated first pressing sugar cane juice, which is called virgin sugar cane honey, rather than molasses and is aged and blended using a unique ageing system based on the solera method traditionally used for sherries. This process is overseen by master blender Lorena Vazquez.

The barrels are stored 2,300 metres (7,500 ft) above sea level in an ageing facility situated below the upper slopes of the mountains and volcanoes of Guatemala, where the temperature is an average of 62 degrees Fahrenheit (17 degrees Celsius). This limits the amount of rum that naturally evaporates (commonly known in industry as The Angels Share) and ultimately allows the rum to age for 23 years where other distilleries struggle.

Early Zacapa bottles came in a bottle covered in a petate (a handwoven matting made from palm leaves which dates from the Mayan period). More recently they feature a band around the middle of the bottle.
