Product description

RON COLÒN - RUM BLUE LABEL - HIGH PROOF AGED RUM - 0,70L - EL SALVADOR - GOLD WINNER SFWSC 2020!

THE NAME RON COLÓN

In the early 16th century the Spanish conquistador Pedro de Alvarado named the newly discovered province of El Salvador (which translates directly to "The Savior") after Jesus Christ.
In 1892 the government of President Carlos Ezeta decided to call the Salvadoran peso "Colón"; in homage to Christopher Columbus. The colón remained the currency of El Salvador until 2001 when it was replaced by the US dollar.

We pay homage to the old “Colónes” banknotes and currency in our bottle labels and the unique coin that is placed in the cap of each bottle. The coin can be jumped off and collected.

RECIPE

• 6 year old column distilled Salvadoran rum made by Licorera Cihuatán distillery.

• Un aged pot distilled Jamaican rum made by distilleries in Worthy Park, Hampden and Monymusk.

• 3 year old Jamaican pot distilled rum made by Worthy Park Estate.

• All rums in the mix are aged at the source.

PROCESS

The local sugar cane is fed through a centuries-old mill and converted into molasses. The molasses is fermented with special yeasts for 36 hours and then distilled in a modern multi-column distillate. After the distillation, the rum matures in former bourbon oak barrels next to rums that the Licorera Cihuatán distillery has been producing since 2004. The rums aged in Licorera Cihuatán have an angel content of around 8% per year.
The master distiller and mixer is Gabriella Ayala.

BLEND

The rums we selected for our blend create a complex palate. By combining column distilled and pot distilled rum, the entire flavor is offered with contrasting properties that interact to create something very special.

DESTILLERY IN EL SALVADOR
The Salvadoran rum is a fruity, delicate style with a light, dry finish. The addition of Jamaican pot distilled rums brings earthy and warm funk into the liquid.

AROMA
On the nose, the aromas of tropical fruits are most evident with fresh banana and sticky pineapple. There is also a deeper aroma of rich raisins and plums.

TASTE
The palate brings the same tropical fruity notes but with an evolving toasted warm spicy caramel flavor. Balanced with creamy milk chocolate, roasted notes of almonds and dried chewy apricots.

BOTTLES
Ron Colón is first bottled in the Netherlands. This decision was made due to the complexity and risk of bottling in El Salvador due to the political situation there. However, we have a bottling partner for Ron Colón in El Salvador, with whom we will work in 2021 when we are all under control.

PACKAGING
We decided early on that RCS would be the liquid, hence the choice to stay away from fancy custom mold designs and opt for the cheapest glass solution in the industry. It is important to know that wine bottle glass is 100% recyclable and it can be recycled endlessly with no loss of quality or purity.
In the labels and closures we have brought the colon currency back to life through our own designs.

    Amazing Blend! Even with a small 30% of the blend, big Jamaican Flavours coming through. Great for mixing cocktails, but I enjoy it mostly neat. If you are a fan of high proof spirits and a fan of Jamaican Rum, this product is for you! Do that Rum & Ting <3
