Rum from above the Clouds.

Ron Zacapa is named after the town in eastern Guatemala. Their sugar cane plantation is located higher on the volcanic plains of Retalhuleu, 1148ft (350m) above sea level. Most Rums use molasses as their base, Zacapa, however, to impart a sweeter and smoother flavour, uses only the concentrated first press of sugar cane, known as virgin sugar cane honey.
 
When it’s time to start the fermentation, a strain of yeast extracted from pineapples is used, which produces unique ‘Zacapa’ aromatic compounds. The Rum is then distilled at sea level in continuous column stills and moved higher into the mountains where the maturation takes place.
 
In the highlands of Quetzaltenango, 7544ft (2.300m) above sea level, lies The House Above the Clouds. This stunning location – one of the highest ageing facilities in the World – is where Zacapa slowly develops its complex flavour and character over time.
 
Ron Zacapa Centenario 15 is matured using Sistema Solero method in a combination of casks that previously held American Whiskey, Sherry and Pedro Ximenez. Rums in this blend range between 5 and 15 years. The result is an enjoyable combination that is somewhat less sweet than other members of the Zacapa family.

A little bit of etymology; nobody really knows where the word Rum comes from. Most popular suggestions are: Rum (the Romani word for potent), Rumbullion (an uproar), Saccharum (sugar in Latin), Rummer (a Dutch drinking glass).
