La Armonia – The Harmony Cask, is the latest release from the luxury Guatemalan rum Ron Zacapa. It is the third of four limited-edition launches which make up the quartet Heavenly cask collection.

They have been named La Armonia to reflect the harmony of the rum blends which have then been further finished in ex-Oloroso sherry casks. This finishing process gives the liquid a silky finish.

The third release from Zacapa 23 in The Heavenly Cask collection is made using the dynamic Zacapa Sistema Solera ageing process. It follows the first limited edition, La Doma – The Taming Cask; and the second, El Alma – The Soul Cask.

Additional ageing

Lorena Vásquez, master blender for Zacapa for over 36 years and expert in the art of multi-cask ageing, says: “The Heavenly Collection allows us to further emphasise this, by additionally ageing the liquid and pushing the boundaries with fascinating flavour combinations.”

Zacapa’s ageing facility in Guatemala, is known as the ‘House Above the Clouds’, nestled in an array of spectacular mountain tops and active volcanoes some 2,300 metres above sea level. The altitude and natural coolness prevents evaporation which is said to result in an unusually smooth product.

Ana Mohzo, global senior brand manager for Diageo, commented: “We’re thrilled to present the latest expression of our Guatemalan roots and we’re very proud that La Armonia is part of the collection. We hope aficionados and collectors of ultra-premium rum enjoy La Armonia as much as we did creating it.”

Ron Zacapa is produced in Guatemala by Rum Creation and Products, a subsidiary of Industrias Licoreras de Guatemala, and distributed and marketed by drinks giant Diageo. Zacapa is a town in eastern Guatemala where doctor and chemist Alejandro Burgaleta first blended, stabilised and matured these long-aged rums.
