Ron Zacapa Centenario is a premium rum produced in Guatemala by Rum Creation and Products, a subsidiary of Industrias Licoreras de Guatemala and distributed and marketed by Diageo. Zacapa was created in 1976 to celebrate the centenary of the foundation of Zacapa, a town in eastern Guatemala.
The rum is produced using Virgin Sugar cane honey rather than molasses. One of the confusing aspects surrounding the various Ron Zacapa rums which have been available has been the ageing statements. This has also been further confused by different territories enjoying different expression of their rums. I have used the full naming convention on the bottle for the purpose of this review to avoid any confusion. This is something I usually do with my reviews but I took extra care with this particular one.
