Ron Zacapa El Alma 23 Solera 70cl 40°
Ron Zacapa rum is aged above the clouds. Master distiller Lorena Vásquez uses exceptional barrels nestled at 2300m above sea level to age Ron Zacapa 23 according to the Solera method, where it will be enriched with extraordinary aromas.
The principle is to combine and age rums of different ages and profiles in a succession of casks of American whiskey, sherry, Oloroso Sherry, Pedro Ximenez. Ron Zacapa 23 El Alma is part of the Heavenly Cask collection.
For four years, a limited edition is released each year, to celebrate one of the barrels of Solera ageing. These limited editions take up the essence of Zacapa 23 and benefit from additional ageing time in a specific barrel.
El Alma is the second edition of this collection. It is a blend of rums aged at least 6 years with a finish in old charred American whiskey casks. There are deep notes, aromas of cinnamon, sweet caramel, and a hint of toasted almonds.

Zacapa is a small town northeast of Guatemala City. In 1976, the city celebrated its centenary and the largest rum producer in the country, the Industria Licorera Quetzalteca, created for the occasion Ron Zacapa Centenario, a truly unique premium spirit.
Unlike other rums, Zacapa uses first press concentrated sugar cane juices, known as "virgin sugarcane honey" rather than molasses, which are residues obtained from sugarcane refining. This influences the taste of the final result.
Using yeasts extracted from pineapple, the mash is slowly fermented before being distilled in a single column copper still. The rum obtained is then aged in cellars, 2300 meters above sea level, "the House above the clouds". This exceptional location intensifies the infusion of flavours from the barrels and enriches the taste of the final nectar.
