Ron Malteco Distillery

Ron Malteco Logo© | Ron Malteco LogoRon Malteco Rum is produced from molasses, which is produced under the production supervision of the business of Industrias Licoreras de Guatemala from the Licorera Quezalteca distillery. The Licorera Quezalteca distillery is perfectly situated in the mountains in the middle of Guatemala. Guatemala is a Central American country and other than excellent Rum, the economy also relies on exports of products such as bananas, coffee, textiles and sugar. The soil conditions in Guatemala are ideal for cultivating high quality sugercane which is the key ingredient of Rum. The by-product of sugar production is called molasses or cane Virgin Honey. This product is used for the preparation of Ron Malteco Rum. In addition to fairly well known Ron Malteco Rum which has high sales in Europe, there are also other well known Guatemalan Rums such as Ron Zacapa, which also enjoys high prestige worldwide.

The sugarcane used for the production of Malteco Rum is grown and harvested in San Andrés. Here the crop is processed for the manufacture of sugar, and the by-product called molasses is retained for the creation of Ron Malteco Rum. Molasses is a thick, black, syrupy by-product of the sugar production process. The black syrup is created by repeatedly boiling sugarcane juice in order to extract sugar crystals. The resulting molasses contains about 25 percent sucrose and 20 percent glucose and fructose. These remaining sugars are then converted into alcohol and distilled into Rum. The molasses is fermented by the Licorera Quezalteca distillery in Quetzaltenang and is then distilled and stored for a period of 10 to 20 years, depending on which Rum is to be prepared. The distillery was founded in 1940 by the Botran family and since then are under excellent control of Industrias de Guatemala Licoreras. At an altitude of 2300 meters and in the climate ranging from 18 to 28 degrees celsius the Ron Malteco Rums are stored in old white oak barrels until they have deployed their full-bodied character permanently. Only after an elaborate inspection and old, traditional quality checks the Rums are released for sale.
