About Ron Colón Salvadoreño Coffee Infused Rum Green Label
Ron Colón was founded by two friends ― Thurman Wise and Pepijn Janssens ― after becoming enamored with El Salvador during a trip they took in 2018 to Latin America. The brand was named after El Salvador's former currency Colón, which in turn got its name from the discoverer of America, Christopher Columbus (Cristóbal Colón in Spanish). The brand soon expanded and the duo became a crew of 6 passionate individuals, the rest is history.
Coming from a bartending background they were fascinated by the country's sugar cane and coffee, both some of the highest quality in the world. They instantly began thinking about ways to combine them with rum, which is how Ron Colon Salvadoreno Coffee Infused Rum came to be. They partnered with Jags Heads Coffee farms and the Licorera Cihuatán distillery to create a unique dry and fruity coffee rum, as well as an aged rum expression.
The rum is a blend of 6-year-old column-still Salvadorean rum (Licorera Cihuatán distillery), unaged Jamaican pot-still rum (Worthy Park, Hampden, and Monymusk distilleries), and 3-year-old Jamaican rum (Worthy Park). It's made with local sugar cane. The Coffee Infused expression takes the Aged Dark Rum and macerates it with medium-roast whole bourbon coffee beans from the El Ciprés region, where they are grown in volcanic soil at an altitude of 1700m. The maceration takes 48 hours, which allows the rich flavor to transfer to the liquid, giving the rum cherry, chocolate, and honey flavors. The spirit is non-chill filtered in order for the coffee oils to remain intact. The Green Label is the lower-proof version of the Red Label.

Rum history allegedly started in the Carribiens in the 17th century when they started to ferment and distill molasses, a byproduct of sugar production. Most of the Rum is aged in oak or ex-wine casks, giving its color and flavor.
