Zacapa Rum was developed by aGuatemalan doctor, Alejandro Burgaleta, who did countless test trials and adjustments to the distillation and stabilization of his rum before releasing his first bottle of rum in 1976.  The rum is distilled from virgin honey, a syrup that has more sugar content than molasses, 72 percent versus 50 percent.  Zacapa rum is crafted in Guatemala in the large mountainous region of Quetzaltenango which is 2300 meters above sea level and was chosen for it’s cooler night time temperatures as well as it’s thinner, lower-oxygenated air which makes the rum aging process more gentle.  The rum develops a complex character and flavor and is best served neat.

Expensive bottles shipping effort.

Items were wrapped and boxed well, with no leakage, they arrived in a timely manner. Good job Chips.

This is great stuff! Close to the limited edition releases, but a third of the retail price. Can’t beat the value. Shipped in great condition.

Great packaging. Everything arrived in one piece.

Couldn’t have been better!

I have a very hard time finding eagle rare near me and Chips came to the rescue.
