Our Story

Delve into the story of Zacapa.

Sistema Solera

The magic of aging is inspired by the Sistema Solera (Solera System), where our rum’s journey includes a multitude of cask types and styles carefully selected by Lorena Vásquez, to capture specific flavors and textures, as well as the perfect color.

When it comes to casks, each one has a story to tell in the final liquid, meaning there’s no finer spirit to go on this journey with. Some are made from American White Oak and were previously used to store American Whiskey, and others are made from European oak that have previously been used to age Cognac, Sherry or Pedro Ximénez Wines.

They each have different degrees of toasting, depending on the final characteristics that are being sought for the different rums. This stage of the production of rums allows Lorena to vary the complexity of the profile that she is seeking in the rum.
