Limited Edition

Cihuatán Nikté

Cihuatán Nikté Limited Edition rum is crafted as an homage to the mystique of Kay Nikté. In an enchanting celebration held beneath the crescent moon’s light, the Maya would offer a sea of sacred petals to the moon goddess. A blend of 4 rums, between 12 and 15 years old aged in American oak ex. Bourbon and new American oak barrels.

Country of origin El Salvador

Legacy blend

To create this enchanting rum, Gabriela Ayala, Cihuatán’s Master Blender, was inspired by the mystical Queen of the Night, also known as Sac Nicté in Nahuat (“sac” means white). This elusive flower blooms for only one night, filling the air with its enticing aroma of raw honey and jasmine. It wilts before dawn. In Nikté, Gabriela captured the unforgettable experience of witnessing the queen’s fleeting bloom. She discovered this blossom as a child, in her grandmother’s garden.

Nose: Very pleasant and mild with warm vanilla aromas combined with a delicate woodyness followed by hints of fresh mint.

Palate: A mild sweetness is filling the mouth turning into fresh mint and marcipan. This rum is fresh, juicy and easy drinkable. It’s very balanced and has a subtle wooden note.

Cihuatán

Enjoying a sip of Cihuatán Rum is to discover a new story about El Salvador. Our country is colorful, optimistic, cheerful and unique. It is a vibrant country, full of color and culture; and we want Cihuatán Rum to share this charming spirit with the world. Since the beginning, we have achieved this task through the aromas, flavors, textures and visuals of Cihuatán Rum. Moved by this vision, we are proud to showcase Cihuatán’s new image, which we believe is an even greater reflection of our beloved El Salvador’s heritage.

Our land’s ancient Mayan heritage is our inspiration. The Maya were insatiably curious, which drove them to study the stars and numbers, to explore new lands and to create ahead of their time. This same curiosity drove us to create what had never been done: El Salvador’s first rum, crafted by hand in the heart of the Cihuatán valley; a rum that every Salvadoran could be proud of. At Cihuatán, we cherish and celebrate this curiosity that drives us all to learn, explore, to grow and enjoy life.

To this day, we continue to invoke that same Salvadoran passion along with the curiosity we inherited from our Mayan ancestors to craft quality rums. We owe it to our country and its people, and that’s why we make rum with passion, with love and always looking to be better.
