Ron Zacapa Edicion Negra 70cl 40°

Distillery : Zacapa / Country : Guatemala / Reference: : 24397

We invite you to discover this daring interpretation of Ron Zacapa, aged above the clouds.

The aging of the barrels takes place in the highlands of Guatemala at 2,300m above sea level where the rum ages delicately to develop exceptional, rich and deep aromas.

It is produced using the "Sistema Solera" technique during which rums aged between 6 and 23 years are blended, then aged in a succession of barrels.

This edition benefits from an additional year of aging in toasted American oak barrels, giving the rum a different structure with intense smoky flavours.

The bottle is surrounded by the traditional Guatemalan band called "petate" affixed by hand.

To consume dry or with an ice cube.

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.

Colour: deep mahogany with an intense amber glow.

Nose: notes of caramelised fruits, plums, grapes, a hint of smoke and incense.

Palate: smoky notes of incense, chocolate flavours and dried fruits.

Finish: bold and persistent.
