Our Story

Delve into the story of Zacapa.

Aged Above
the Clouds

After distillation, Zacapa undergoes an amazing journey from the volcano-shadowed lowlands to the head of a valley 2,300 meters (7,545 feet) above sea level where the cooler, moist climate in the ‘House Above the Clouds’ enables Zacapa to acquire its unique qualities and signature taste profile.

The fresh mountain air delicately ages our rum, enabling the development of the deep aroma, body, full color and rich flavor of Zacapa. Here, at the House Above the Clouds, wooden barrels share their aromas and flavors through the unique ‘Sistema Solera’ aging process.
