The Legend

In the heart of every bottle of Cihuatán Xaman lies the Sleeping Woman, Mayan goddess and guardian of the Cihuatán valley.

Legend has it that under the veil of night, the Sleeping Woman would look for the brightest star in the sky. This was Xaman, god of the North Star.

The Sleeping Woman would ask Xaman for wisdom and prosperity for the valley and its people. Xaman would then rest atop a sacred Ceiba tree, the Mayan tree of life.

The Maya cherished the wood of their Ceiba trees and used it to craft items of protection for battle, charms to bring prosperity and vessels for travel.

Sahumerio, a celebration of 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 eagle 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.

TYPE OF RUM of Cihuatan 8 years

AGE: 8 years old AGING METHOD: Aged in American Oak ex-Bourbon barrels STRENGTH: 40% Alc./Vol. CONTENT: 70 cl ORIGIN: El Paisnal, San Salvador, El Salvador 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.

Sahumerio, the ritual. The Maya were a tight-knit community and deeply valued love and relationships. To attract love, they would perform a simple and enchanting ritual: in a Sahumerio, they would burn treats to gain the goddess Chantico’s graces. Each treat had a meaning: dried flowers or floral honey for romance, dried fruits for family unity, incense for friendship, cacao, seeds and butters for self protection. Cihuatán Sahumerio features a blend of handpicked light and heavy rums to achieve the desired notes which mimic what the Maya used to burn in their Sahumerios. Suggested serve : Neat or on the rocks. Suggested pairing : 1. Steak 2. Cured cheese with umami such as parmesan or Spanish manchego 3. Dates
