Today I want to introduce you to Zacapa premium rum, one of the world's best tasting rums. The story behind this premium dark rum and how it is aged 2,300 meters above sea level to create a unique complexity of flavor that is perfection and is as mesmerizing as looking at a bottle of Zacapa.
From 19th century railroad to 21st century rum
In eastern Guatemala, 229m above sea level, lies the town of Zacapa.
Founded in 1876 as a bustling railroad stop, the resident population was soon joined by travellers from around the world, leaving a legacy that can still be seen today in local surnames.
In 1976, the town reached its centenary. To celebrate this historic event, Guatemala’s premier rum-producing company decided to create something special.
Coolly aged to perfection
In the highlands of Quetzaltenango, 2300m above sea level, lies The House Above the Clouds. Here in the mountains, the cool temperature slows the ageing process, while the thinner air and lower atmospheric pressure helps intensify the infusion of flavours from the barrels. Only in this precise spot can Zacapa’s exceptionally deep aroma, full colour and rich palate emerge to reach perfection.
