Bottle of premium Guatemalan rum. Ron Zacapa Centenario is a popular premium rum produced in Guatemala. Zacapa was created in 1976 to celebrate the centenary of the town of Zacapa, in eastern Guatemala. The company claims that part of their success lies in the fact that barrels are stored 2,300 meters above sea level in an aging facility situated below the upper slopes of the mountains and volcanoes of Guatemala, where the temperature is an average of 62°F. The rum has won awards from various international competitions and is the first rum to be included in the International Rum Festival’s Hall of Fame.
