About Botran Solera 1893 Aged Rum
Founded at the beginning of the 20th century by Venancio, Andrés, Felipe, Jesús, and Alejandro Botran, Industrias Licoreras de Guatemala is the largest Guatemalan distillery that produces several award-winning brands. Besides making vodka, brandy, tequila, and whiskey, the distillery is most famous for producing brands of premium Guatemalan rum, such as Ron Zacapa and Ron Botran.
As all Guatemalan rums are made from sugar cane honey, Industrias Licoreras de Guatemala sources the sugar from the Tululá Sugar Mill. The sugar cane honey is then fermented for 120 hours and yeast is cultivated from pineapples. With the distillery situated at 7000 feet, the rum doesn't age in the tropical heat but rather in a more temperate climate of the mountains, which enables more consistent and smooth aging. The distillery boasts impressively tall stainless-steel rum still that reach 23 meters, withstanding high winds.
