Inspired by Ron Zacapa’s 40th anniversary, our Master Blender Lorena Vásquez has created this unique rum. The rarest and most mature barrels have been selected for this unique product. Rum, which varies from 8 to 30 years, is rounded off after a long aging process in rare French oak casks, which come exclusively from four French forests. The area in which these woods are located is formerly known as “The King’s Trees” or Le Bois du Roy™. WHAT IS LE BOIS DU ROY? Le Bois du Roy is the name of the four French forests where the wood for the barrels was purchased. The 4 different forests are called Allier, Nevers, Vosges and Tronçais. The tree has been protected since the 13th century, when its harvest was subject to severe restrictions by the king. The king dictated that the use of these barrels had to have his personal approval and could therefore only be used for the finest and best vintages. WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM THIS ROOM? A unique rum and its slow aging conveys a complexity of aromas and a character that gives an experience of the luxury roast with a finish that is sweet, exotic and superbly smooth.

Guatemalan Ron Zacapa is without question one of the world’s best rum houses. For no less than seven years in a row, the house has officially received the prestigious designation at the serious International Rum Festival. The house doesn’t really have many years behind it, but saw the light of day in 1976, 100 years after the founding of the town of Zacapa, which is 112 kilometers from Guatemala City. Unlike many other producers who use molasses, Zacapa uses the juice from the first pressing of sugar cane. This makes the rum more round and soft and helps ensure Zacapa’s characteristic taste profile. However, you can also thank the area in southern Guatemala itself for that. The fertile soil is rich in volcanic minerals and rivers that nourish all life. Both parts help to ensure the rum’s depth and aroma. After distillation, the rum is sent on a bit of a journey from the lowlands to the “House above the clouds” at an altitude of 2300 meters, where the cooler temperatures and high humidity benefit the rum. The fresh mountain air matures the rum and contributes to its deep aroma, its fullness and complex flavor notes. This is also where it ages in oak barrels and goes through the solera process. What is solera? Actually a blend, so the finished rum includes rum from several cask types and styles – carefully selected by Master Blender Lorena Vásquez. Some casks are made of white, American oak and have contained American whiskey, while others are made of European oak, which previously contained cognac, sherry or wines at Pedro Ximenez. All casks are roasted to varying degrees – something that greatly affects the finished rum. All this allows Lorena Vásquez to put together high-quality rums with great complexity.
