Meet the Makers
Maestra Ronera (Master Blender) Gabriela Ayala earnestly watches over every barrel and is constantly inspired by El Salvador's Mayan heritage to create truly unique spirits. Enjoying a sip of Cihuatán Rum is to discover a new story about El Salvador.
The Maya were insatiably curious, which drove them to study the stars and numbers, to explore new lands and to create ahead of their time. This same curiosity drove the founders to create what had never been done: El Salvador’s first rum, crafted by hand in the heart of the Cihuatán valley; a rum that every Salvadoran could be proud of and that the world must experience.
This limited edition blend of 4 rums between 12-14 years honors the eagle goddess Chantico, guardian or fire - the Mayan symbol of love.
Aged in American Oak ex-Bourbon barrels. Dried apricot, cacao butter, and dried apricots combine in this sipping blend of light and heavy rums.
