Zacapa, an altitude rum


My dear readers,

I invite you today to discover Guatemala! Located in the heart of Central America, Guatemala is a mysterious and captivating country...

Its varied and harmonious landscapes, active volcanoes, high-altitude lakes and tropical forests make Guatemala an extraordinary country!

I discovered in Guatemala dazzling archaeological sites. The Tikal, an ancient Mayan citadel located in the heart of tropical forests, is one of the largest archaeological sites of the Mayan civilization. Its outsized dimensions and its architecture make it a place of exceptional culture!

You should know, my kind readers, that Guatemala is not only this rich historical heritage and these impregnable jungles! Guatemala is also prestigious and original rums!


The menu of the Gloster Bar gives us a trip to the end of the world with its rum Zacapa XO, also nicknamed the "Cognac rum".

The Botran-Requejo family is at the origin of this fabulous creation. The farm is located in the heart of the Guatemalan mountains, at over 2000 m above sea level!

The tasting of Zacapa is a real taste trip! It is a perfect combination of spices and fruits! The aging process resulting from the "sistema solera" technique gives this rum delicious aromas of honey, caramel, spicy oak or even dried fruit flavors!

Savouring this subtle rum at the Gloster Bar is a real escape. The tropical decoration of the place transports us in an instant to Guatemala!

See you soon!
