The method of manufacture
The local sugar cane passes through a century-old cane mill, then molasses is collected. It ferments with unique yeasts for 36 hours before being distilled in a modern multi-column still. After distillation, the rum is aged in white oak bourbon barrels, placed next to the rum that Licorera Cihuatán has been making since 2004. Aged rum Licorera Cihuatán has an 8% share of angels per year. The Master Distiller and Blender is Gabriella Ayala.
