HOW RUM IS MADE
The process of distilling rum hasn’t changed much over the last few centuries. In fact, it’s nearly identical to the whiskey distilling process with one twist: rather than using grain, rum is distilled from sugarcane.
The Tenango Process
FirstSugarcane is harvested in Guatemala from the stem leaving the root of the sugarcane, to allow the root to re-grow.
SecondThrough a routine extraction, a liquid molasses is pulled from the sugarcane.
ThirdThe liquid molasses is then fermented in a copper Pot Still.
FourthThe liquid molasses is mixed with water and yeast to help the sugar ferment.
LastThis mixture is placed inside an American oak barrel to naturally ferment for up to six years.
