Licorera Cihuatán proudly handcrafts El Salvador's first premium rum. The company started in 2004, and owns the country's only distillery.
Ron Cihuatán’s story begins in one of its valleys, where the ancient Mayan city of Cihuatán remains undiscovered. To this day, this city lies buried with most of its secrets and history.
Legend has it that a Goddess came to Cihuatán many centuries ago, and bestowed its lands with riches and fertility. She then went to sleep on the valley to always look after its crops. Her spirit still watches over our sugarcane fields, remaining in the shape of the Guazapa Mountain.
Our rum is named after this legend: in Nahuat “Cihuatán” means “the land beside the sleeping woman”.
