Flavour profile

An exceptional taste experience

Crafted in Guatemala, Zacapa Rum is an embodiment of patience, quality and master blending. Instead of molasses, it uses ‘virgin honey’ obtained from the first pressing of sugar cane. It’s then aged in the highlands of Quetzaltenango 2,300 M.A.S.L. in casks that previously held whiskies and fine wines. Zacapa Rum delivers a complex flavour and character. As far as rums go, this is a work of art.


Sweet sugar and smoke, and spices.


Dark, rich amber and brown


Caramel and toffee, spices, fruit peel and nutty.


A hint of smoke and molasses to the finish.

A bit of history

Zacapa rums are aged using a process they call ‘Sistema Solera’, a similar system used to age Spanish sherry. The barrels used in the aging of Zacapa rum were previously used to age American whiskies and wines from Jerez and Pedro Ximénez.
