Splendid sunset trapped in Spirit.
The Botran family were pretty famous sugar cane producers in Guatemala, when five brothers decided in 1939 that making Rum would be a neat new venture. They chose the town of Quetzaltenango to be the perfect spot to mature their Spirits, and so it began. They started using the solera system, which is basically constant moving of the Spirit from barrel to barrel, younger to older. The average age thus gradually increases, and the distinctive style is maintained. It’s like a perpetual stew, except it’s Rum instead of food. The Botrans were the first family in Guatemala to employ this difficult system, and they’ve perfected it down to a t.
Botran’s 12YO also went through the solera treatment, which means it’s a blend of Rums between 5 and 12 years old. It was produced at the same distillery as Ron Zacapa, made from virgin sugar cane honey. It was aged in barrels that used to hold Port, Bourbon, and Sherry. Volcanic soil and maturing in the mountains of Guatemala are revealed in the tropical palate and sweet nose.

Rum is why we measure alcohol proof. To make sure Rum wasn’t watered down, it had to be ‘proven’ by soaking gunpowder with it. If it was ‘overproof’ (higher than 57.15 % vol.), then the gunpowder would ignite, but if it wouldn’t, it was ‘underproof.’
