Taking Aged Rum To A Whole Other Level, Zacapa Premium Rums

This post brought to you by Diageo.  All opinions are 100% mine.


With September having one of the most precious of food and drink holidays there is to be celebrated (Rum Punch Day) We here at The Supreme Plate feel it is only right to enlighten our readers about various new brands that stand up and above other brands, literally from the day their sugar cane is grown. It is widely known by our friends, colleagues and so on that we are true lovers of libations, dishes and desserts that include Rum.

Zacapa's amazing history all began in 1976 in Eastern Guatemala, where while celebrating their Centenary, one of the World’s best rums was given birth too. A few miles West, in a terrain rich with volcanic soil and prolonged periods of sunlight, (which creates a landscape perfectly suited for growing Sugar Cane,) highly coveted Virgin Sugar Cane Honey is created. This precious honey is used as the base for Zacapa’s perfectly aged Rums.

Aged in the astonishingly beautiful Quetzaltenango mountains some 2,300 meters above sea level in casks that previously housed American Whiskey, Oloroso Sherry and Pedro Ximenez Wines, Zacapas flavors are so exquisitely layered that not allowing yourself a taste should be considered a sin.

Whether it be one of Zacapa’s Premium Rums or their Premium Dark Rums, you cannot go wrong having a bottle or two of this on hand for your next function. Zacapa premium rum
Take our word for it, this is not your average well-rum, this here is instant vintage in a bottle. Reminiscent of robust cigars, fresh floral scents and aged wood Zacapa Rums are sure to please even the most refined of palates. Many of the worlds greatest desserts incorporate Rum into the recipe this is a fact.

Without any hesitation we put Zacapa’s Premium Dark Rum to use in our version of Bananas Foster and found that it created such a deliciously rich, deep flavor unfound by using your typical liquor store brand of Rum. This is something we will be adding to our bars, beverage carts and menus at every function from here on out. premium dark rum

  1. That's the kind of stuff we could only learn about here. Do they ship to customers overseas by chance?
