product Details

Ron Zacapa Centenario Straight from the Cask

The Industrias Licoreras de Guatemala distillery was established in 1914 by five brothers; Venancio, Andrés, Felipe, Jesús and Alejandro Botran. Nowadays it is the largest distillery in Guatemala, producing both the Botran brand after its eponymous founders, and the globally recognised Ron Zacapa. The distillery operates a two-column stainless steel still, and uses a wash made from sugarcane “honey.” This is the product of the first stage in molasses production, which produces a syrup by boiling off the water from freshly pressed cane juice. This provides a lighter distillate than traditional molasses.

An older edition of the multi-award winning Ron Zacapa. Modern iterations now state that the 23 years are derived from solera ageing, whether this was the case here is unclear.

This is the Straight from the Cask release, a limited edition release from 2005.
