All about making whisky
Ron Zacapa is a famous Guatemalan rum that has acquired almost mythical status. The producers of Ron Zacapa own a sugar plantation 350 metres above sea level, and only use sugar cane juice that has been concentrated into a special “honey”. The mash is gently fermented using pineapple yeast extracts, before being distilled in a single column copper still. The rum is then aged in barrels at an altitude of 2,300 metres. The original, premium quality blend, Zacapa 23, is aged in a solera in barrels from the production of American bourbon, Spanish sherry and European wine.
