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 Colón Salvadoreño 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 70% 6-year-old column-still Salvadorean rum, 15% unaged Jamaican pot-still rum, and 15% 3-year-old Jamaican rum. It's made with local sugar cane and aged in white oak ex-bourbon barrels. The Salvadorean rum is produced at the Licorera Cihuatán distillery under the watchful eye of blender and Master Distiller Gabriella Ayala. First, the sugar cane is milled using a 100-year-old mill, then the molasses ferment for 36 hours before they are distilled. The rum is then aged with a high yearly angel's share of 8%. The Salvadorean rum brings fruity and tropical notes to the profile, while the Jamaican rums bring an earthiness and warmth for a perfect balance.
