Zacapa 23 is a super-premium rum made from a blend of rums aged between 6 and 23 years.
Instead of molasses, in the production of Zacapa the so-called “virgin honey” is used, obtained from the first pressing of sugar cane and undergoes an exclusive aging process called the Solera System, stored in a series of used barrels previously to age American whiskeys and wines from Jerez and Pedro Ximénez.
Zacapa’s secret is its slow aging in the privacy of the cold lands of the Guatemalan highlands (at 2,300 m altitude). This contributes to slowing down the aging process, creating a final balance between aromas and flavors extracted during the process.
Zacapa was recognized for five consecutive years as the best rum in the world in the International Rum Tasting Contest and is the only premium rum included in the Rum Hall of Fame. In January 2012, the Zacapa brand was recognized by the World Luxury Association as one of the hundred most valued and influential brands in the luxury market worldwide.
He has five awards at the International Rum Contest; inducted into the Rum Hall of Fame. Perfect balance between sweetness and spices, dehydrated fruits, sweet oak and dark chocolate with pillory. You will enjoy complex flavors of sweet fruits and chocolate when consumed alone, with ice or in cocktails. Zacapa rum is aged at high altitude in different barrels that previously contained whiskey and sherry. Zacapa is the most exquisite rum to share before or after a meal with friends.
