Ron Cihuatán’s story dates all the way back to the ancient Mayan city of Cihuatán. According to legend, a Goddess bestowed Cihuatán with riches and fertility. Her spirit still watches over the sugarcane fields, remaining in the shape of the Guazapa Mountain. This Salvadorean rum is named after this legend ― the Nahuat word "Cihuatán" translates to "the land beside the sleeping woman". It's the local culture, legends, gods, and spirits, that served as the main inspiration for El Salvador's first rum distillery.

The spirit is produced by Licorera Cihuatán, a subsidiary of Ingenio La Cabaña of El Salvador. This rum is made using a 100-year-old sugar cane mill. The Licorera Cihuatán craft distillery was established in 2004 and began distilling and aging their rums. After fermentation, the rum is mostly aged in used American oak bourbon barrels. The team has complete control over the process, starting with the sugar cane seeds, overseeing distilling, aging, blending, and bottling with Master Blender Gabriela Ayala channeling her passion into each bottle of the finished product.

Each of their rums pays tribute to a different god or spirit, the Cinabrio celebrating the Mayan god of the sun Kinich Ahau, traditionally represented by the color red ― this was extracted from "cinabrio" or cinnabar. This rum has spent at least a dozen years in ex-Bourbon barrels. Bottled at 80 proof, it has rich fruity, nutty, orange, and sugar cane notes.
