Ron Colon Salvadore is a collaborative project by a team of producers, distillers, flavour experts and marketers.
A love for EL Salvador and it’s people drove the imagination of the Ron Colon crew.
The rum begins its life from local sugar cane that is gathered and then run through a 100-year-old sugar cane mill to be turned into molasses.
From molasses, it undergoes fermentation with proprietary yeasts for 36 hours before being distilled by a modern multi- column still.
After distillation the rum is aged in white oak ex-bourbon barrels sitting alongside rums that The Licorera Cihuatán distillery has been producing since 2004.
The rum aged in Licorera Cihuatán have around 8% angel share per year. The Master Distiller and blender is Gabriella Ayala.

Ron Colón Salvadoreño Dark Aged Rum is cold macerated with whole coffee beans for 48 hours. This allows enough time for the coffee beans to release their rich cherry, chocolate, honey flavors, before the bitter notes begin to impart on the liquid, the maceration is finished.

The lack of sweetness on the palate makes this a fantastic rum for cocktails – allowing you to sweeten with other ingredients.

Tasting Notes

Overall a rich, complex and fruity rum with a long satisfying , luscious finish.

Nose: Sweet espresso coffee, vanilla and crushed nuts. A hint of Keens curry powder lurks in the background.

Palate: Complete contrast to the sweetness of the nose. Not quite bitter – but definitely dry. Dark… DARK chocolate, nutty unsweetened coffee tones but tropical fruit notes underneath it all.

Finish: Long deep finish. Warming, fruity and more coffee notes. Lingering mellow spiceyness as it slowly fades.
 

From the Creators
The coffee infused Ron Colón Salvadoreño is made using bourbon coffee beans from the El Ciprés region, grown at 1700m next to El Salvador’s famous Santa Ana volcano. Bourbon coffee beans have a beautiful, buttery sweetness. The beans are processed using the natural method – a slow process, the beans are consistently turned by hand to ensure they dry equally.
 

Nose: On the nose, notes of toasted almonds and woody spice are most apparent – with dark rich fruit and warm vanilla bringing a sweeter note.

Palate: The coffee infusion brings notes of dark chocolate and dried sticky plums. A medium to dark roast gives the rum a rich, warming, nutty flavor with a tiny hint of bitterness. This is balanced from the notes of the aged rum of fresh banana and juicy pineapple.
