First 2 Bottle Australian Release – Ron Cihuatan Rum Sahumerio Limited Edition 700ml
- Brand: Cihuatan
Current bid: $250.00 (inc GST)
This auction lot features the first two bottle Australian release of the Ron Cihuatan Sahumerio Limited Edition Rum 700ml Cihuatán Sahumerio. This is a limited edition rum created as a celebration of love. According to Mayan lore, fire was the symbol of love and the eagle goddess Chantico was its guardian. Thus, every loving home would keep a “Sahumerio”, a sacred vessel for fire. These Sahumerios would burn day and night in honor of love.
This craft rum is blended from 4 rums aged 12 to 14 years in El Salvador. The limited-edition expression features hand-numbered bottles and a taste profile that is meant to invoke the aromas of the Mayan Sahumerio ritual.
Ron Cihuatán’s story dates all the way back to the ancient Mayan city of Cihuatán. According to legend, a Goddess bestowed Cihuatán with riches and fertility. Her spirit still watches over the sugarcane fields, remaining in the shape of the Guazapa Mountain. This Salvadorean rum is named after this legend ― the Nahuat word “Cihuatán” translates to “the land beside the sleeping woman”. It’s the local culture, legends, gods, and spirits, that served as the main inspiration for El Salvador’s first rum distillery.
The spirit is produced by Licorera Cihuatán, a subsidiary of Ingenio La Cabaña of El Salvador. This rum is made using a 100-year-old sugar cane mill. The Licorera Cihuatán craft distillery was established in 2004 and began distilling and aging their rums. After fermentation, the rum is mostly aged in used American oak bourbon barrels. The team has complete control over the process, starting with the sugar cane seeds, overseeing distilling, aging, blending, and bottling with Master Blender Gabriela Ayala channeling her passion into each bottle of the finished product.
With the Mayan legends serving as inspiration, each of their rums pays tribute to a different god or spirit. The Sahumerio is a limited-edition blend of 4 rums that have spent between 12 and 14 years in ex-Bourbon casks. It’s the blend itself that is directly connected to spirituality ― each of the aromas is meant to invoke the smells of the Sahumerio ritual. The ritual involves burning treats in order for the Mayan goddess Chantico to grant the home with love, unity, friendship, and protection. Bottled at 90.4 proof and numbered by hand, it’s a rich and complex sipping rum.
