Zacapa Premium Rum Perfectly Aged in the Clouds

ZacapaHey there.  Have you had the chance to experience the heavenly taste of Zacapa premium rum?  No?  Then you are definitely missing out, my friends.  There's a reason why I say it's heavenly.  It's literally aged to  perfection in the clouds.  Here's the story.

Zacapa premium dark rum was born in the Eastern Guatemala in 1976.  The land is perfectly suitable to grow and harvest the sugar cane.  So much so, that the sugar cane is actually planted in volcanic soil.  This assures that it will definitely be top notch when it's ready to harvest.  Also, because Zacapa uses the best sugar cane, they take it up a notch and use sugar can honey as their base.  Since many other rums are molasses based, this gives Zacapa rum their distinctive taste.

You remember how I said it's practically aged in the clouds?  Well... it is!  At 2300 meters above sea level, The House Above the Clouds is one of the world's highest ageing facilities.  Using a 500 year old Spaniard aging process, the rum runs through casks of American whiskey, Oloroso Sherry, and Pedro Ximenez wines to give the rum it's unique flavor.

So there you have it.  The story of how Zacapa rum is created.  Why not join the Zacapa Society and discover it for yourself?  You can simply register here and get all the up to date information on Zacapa and their aged rums.
