Love, fire, and a fiery Salvadorean Rum.

Cihuátan was an ancient Mayan city that was granted riches and fertility by a goddess who took the form of a nearby mountain to watch over the sugar cane fields. The name itself is a reference to this legend and translates to "the land beside the sleeping woman". That's quite a backstory! Here's another shocker: Ron de El Salvador Cihuátan is the first Rum distillery in El Salvador. Dedicated to sustainability, Master Blender Gabriela Ayala crafts delicious Spirits, each expression paying tribute to a different Mayan god.

The Cihuátan Sahumerio is a limited-edition affair, a Rum that's crafted with 4 rums aged 12 to 14 years that come from their private reserves. It's a tribute to love and the Mayan goddess Chantico that represents it. The Sahumerio is a ritual that is performed in order to invite the goddess via a sacred vessel. This vessel would have a fire burning night and day, inviting love into the home. It's a fiery Rum indeed ― the juices were aged in ex-Bourbon casks before being bottled at 90.4 proof.

Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
A little bit of etymology; nobody really knows where the word Rum comes from. The most popular suggestions are Rum (the Romani word for 'potent'), Rumbullion (an uproar), Saccharum (sugar in Latin), and Rummer (a Dutch drinking glass).
You might find Rum masquerading itself under other nom de plumes, like Ron, Rom and Rhum.
Mount Gay Rum is the oldest existing Rum company in the World dating back to 1705. This is also the year Guy Fawkes tried to blow up Britain’s Parliament.

Next time you have a tipple of Rum you can say that you're tapping the Admiral. This intriguing phrase comes from the great Admiral Nelson who was killed in the battle of Trafalgar off of Spain. The story is that his body was preserved in Rum to be shipped back to England but, when the barrel arrived, some of the Rum was missing and said to have been siphoned off by some desperate or unknowing sailors. It's a great story but most likely false.
