The full-bodied and generous Ron Zacapa Centenario Rum 23 year old Sistema Solera comes from eastern Guatemala in Central America. The warm climatic conditions, the soil of volcanic rock, the height of the distillery (2300 m above sea level) and the proximity to the sea to the sugar cane fields make all the ideal conditions for the production of perfect Rum. For the production of the generous and beautiful portfolio of Ron Zacapa Rums a high quality juice from exclusively regional sugar cane is used. With yeast, the sugar cane juice is converted into sugar wine which is then distilled in copper pot stills. The light mahogany Ron Zacapa Centenario Rum 23 year old Sistema matures in the dynamic Solera method in which several oak barrels are serially stacked. The young distillates are in the top barrels and are gradually filled into the lower barrels with the older distillates. Thus, the up to 23 year matured distillates are in the bottom row. The aging and blending process takes place in a facility high up in the mountains near Quetzaltenango with warm daytime temperatures and cool night time temperatures which slows down the aging process.
The selected oak barrels previously stored Spanish sherry, American whiskey and wine of the grape Pedro Ximιnez, which contributes significantly to the unsurpassable complex character and flavor formation of the unique premium Ron Zacapa Centenario Rum 23 year old Sistema Solera. This time-consuming and careful process has ensured a popular and valued Solera Rum for the market. The Ron Zacapa Centenario Rum 23 year old Sistema Solera has been particularly well received among newcomers and Rum experts. The Ron Zacapa Centenario Rum 23 year old Sistema Solera will be honored for years inexorably with countless national and international awards.
