About Cihuatán Nahual Limited Edition RumRon 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. This expression honors the Nahual ― guardian spirits that watch over each person. The Nahual Legacy Blend is crafted with 3 rums that have spent between 11 and 14 years in ex-Bourbon as well as new American oak barrels. Released in limited numbers, this award-winning rum is bottled at 95 proof and features artwork by acclaimed Salvadorean artist Gabriel Granadino.
