Ron Centenario distillery
© berevita.com | Ron Centenario logoCosta Rica is the country of origin of many world famous Rums. This tropical holiday paradise offers year-round summer, sun, beach and sea. Costa Rica lies between the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, connecting North and South America together. The region is home to beautiful beaches and landscapes.
Unique and rare animals habitat this country and approximatley 35% of the land is a nature reserve. The most important export products of the country include: bananas, pineapples, coffee, sugar and just to top it all (Centenario) Rum.
The constant and warm climate is ideal for the cultivation of high quality sugarcane. The tropical temperatures cause very strong saccharification in the sugarcane plants blessing Rum from Costa Rica with their sugary taste. After 15 months the sugarcane is harvested by hand and then processed. The molasses and sugarcane juice are the basic building blocks for Ron Centenario Rums.© privateerrum.com | Rum fermentation
The equipment for fermentation and distillation are located on the Pacific coast. For the different varieties, different, traditional distillation methods are used, depending on the vintage of the Rum. The younger Rums are produced by column distillation. For the production of older varieties, the pot still distillation process is used.
After each distillation process all Rum is aged in small American oak bourbon barrels. This gives the Rum its unique character in flavour, taste, and colour. The consistently warm temperatures of Costa Rica creates strong evaporation in the barrels. Thus, the Ron Centenario Rums develop an intense and full-bodied flavour within a few years as well as the unique and smooth sweetness. The Centenario distillery is located amidst huge pineapple and banana plantations, which also contributes to the wonderful sweet fragrance of the Centenario Rums.© thelonecaner.com | Ron Centenario 12 Anos
