Aged in American Oak ex-Bourbon barrels
Cihuatán Indigo is a rum crafted as a homage to Tlaloc, Mayan god of rain. Legend has it that the Sleeping Woman, guardian goddess of the Cihuatán valley, would intercede on behalf of the people of Cihuatán so that Tlaloc would make the valley bloom. The name “Indigo” was inspired by the color blue, which was crafted by the ancient Maya using the Indigo flower (añil). Blue was Tlaloc’s sacred color and a symbol of El Salvador. Symbols: The Sleeping Woman & Tlaloc: Tlaloc was the Mayan god of rain, embodied by a cloud. He was one of the patron gods of the ancient city of Cihuatán. The Maya believed the Sleeping Woman would intercede on behalf of the people of Cihuatán to gain his favor. The Snake: Sacred Mayan animal, symbol of wisdom. Multiple snakes inhabit the Cihuatán valley, some can even be seen at our distillery on rainy days!
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. At Cihuatán, we cherish and celebrate this curiosity that drives us all to learn, explore, to grow and enjoy life. Invoke your curiosity.
