Cihuatán Xaman is an ultra-premium rum fondly named after Xaman, Mayan god of the North Star and protector of the Cihuatán valley. This elegant composition features extra-old rums aged in American white oak barrels and then finished in Mayan Ceiba barrels. Cihuatán’s master blender Gabriela selected the unique wood of the Mayan Ceiba tree for its rich character and alluring profile.

The North Star

Cihuatán Xaman is the house’s ultimate homage to their rich Mayan heritage and Salvadoran roots. The name “Xaman” was inspired by the Mayan god of the North Star and protector of the Cihuatán valley. For this prestige edition, Gabriela Ayala was inspired by the Mayan legend of Xaman. According to Mayan lore, Xaman could always be found as the brightest star in the sky, and the Maya would come to him for guidance and wisdom. Cihuatán Xaman is a 16 year-old rum, featuring rums aged for 15 years in American oak ex-Bourbon barrels, finished for 1 additional year in Mayan Ceiba barrels.

Tasting Notes: Balsamic toast, panela glazed bacon, grilled pineapple, clove, leather & plums.

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.
