The Mayan Ritual for Love

Cihuatán Sahumerio is a limited edition rum created as a celebration of love. According to Mayan lore, fire was the symbol of love and the eagel 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. Gabriela was inspired by the aromas of the treats the Maya would burn in their Sahumerios, such as dried flowers and floral honey for romance, dried fruits for family unity, incense for friendship, cacao seeds and butters for self-protection. To achieve these notes in the rum, she blended together four of Cihuatán’s private reserve rums, vintages ranging from 12 years – 14 years.

Tasting Notes: Incense, dried myrtle, cacao butter, dried apricots & carnation honey.

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.
