Zacapa Rum Essential Facts

  • Zacapa’s rum is aged in warehouses 8,000 feet above sea level where the temperature is about 62 degrees year round. Master Distiller Lorena Vásquez calls the facility the “house above the clouds.”
  • While most rums are made from molasses, Zacapa is produced from fresh crushed sugarcane.

    Zapaca is not Zaya, but I agree that Zaya should be taken neat.

    Everybody should drink his drink the way he likes it! But I prefer simle White Rum in my coke. Zacapa I drink straight. I love it so much I even wrote a book about it. Read it and you will never drink it with coke again.

    I'm not a rum guy, but once I tried Zacapa and was completely different to all rums I had before. Its the best alcoholic drink I've ever had

    Please, if you drink rum with cola, use Bacardi. Don't waste this fine rum.
