It’s not often that we run across women distillers. In the case of Zacapa Rum, the master distiller is a wonderful woman named Lorraina. Believe us, Lorraina makes some mean rum.
An aged rum named after the town of Zacapa, Guatemala., which combines the best of low and high altitudes. Zacapa is a combination of sugar cane honey extracted from sugar cane grown near sea level, fermented with yeast extracted from pineapples and then slow aged at for 6 to 23 years in the clouds at 2300 meters.
Ron Zacapa Rum is a light mahogany in color with notes of coffee, cocoa, pineapple, raisin, dried fig, butterscotch, hazelnut and banana. The Zacapa has a lovely, light, smooth texture with a cocoa flavor and undertones of coffee, pineapple, raisin, dried fig and hazelnuts.
