Zafra: Definition & SIGNIFICANCE


All rum is made from sugar cane. In Spanish, Zafra refers to the act of harvesting sugarcane. It is the moment in time when nature rewards men for months of dedication and arduous labor. After the harvest, our skilled Master Distiller transforms the gathered cane into rum, and after careful maturation in selected bourbon casks, the alchemy is complete. Converting aged rum into the masterpiece we call Zafra. Every rum in the world owes its existence to a Zafra. “There is no rum without Zafra”. Zafra Rum is the first to pay tribute to this time-honored tradition. “From A to Zafra” – this rum embodies the complete story of rum, from the harvest through the fermentation, distillation, aging and “Small Batch” blending to the hands of the discerning consumer.
