Ron Zacapa is an excellent Guatemalan rum, the result of a special blend of long aged anejos rums. It owes its name to the area of Zacapa, a municipality in Guatemala founded at the time of the Spanish colonization. Many centuries before developed the Mayan civilization in this region of which still remain archaeological ruins. Unlike most rums, which use molasses as a basis, only pure sugar cane juice, called Miel Virgen (virgin honey) from Guatemala, is used for the production of Ron Zacapa rums. This is what makes the Zacapa rum unique.
Ron Zacapa XO contains a blend of rums from 6 to 25 years old, with an extra ageing stage in French oak barrels that previously held cognac.
