Perfectly positioned between North and South America and flanked by the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, Guatemala is a land rich in biodiversity and varied ecosystems. It also happens to have volcanic enriched soil and an ideal climate for growing sugar cane, the raw material of rum.
The rums of Guatemala are also distinguished by their unique, high-altitude aging process in the highlands. The altitude and cooler temperature restrict evaporation so the rums may adopt their individual taste profiles. Making high-rum in this way is a unique art form that has been carefully conserved and enriched over the years.
For over six decades Botran has been crafting rums in this great Guatemalan tradition. The Botran rums are aged in a Solera system.
