The process of creating Ron Centenario Fundacion 20 Year Rum begins with carefully selecting the sugar cane, a strong stem filled with a juicy tissue where the sugar is extracted from. Costa Rica’s tropical climate favored by the volcanic soil and natural riches are ideal conditions for harvesting this plant every 15 months. The harvest coincidentally takes place during the summer. The stem is removed by hand and carried to the trapiche in order to extract the juicy nectar and benefit from its sweet products. The juice is submitted to a fermentation process where special yeast transforms the sugar into alcohol and other products.
Once the fermentation procedure is completed, the premium material of the finest rum in Costa Rica is now ready to be purified by a distillation process that refines and separates all the different products obtained. The young alcohol obtained from this process is stored in fine white oak barrels initiating the ageing process that gives Ron Centenario its exquisite aroma, unique flavor and the characteristics of the finest rum in Costa Rica.
Ron Centenario conserves its premium quality and incomparable flavor by completing a very special blending process which is the secret in Ron Centenario’s recipe. Before the rum is bottled and distributed it is submitted to quality control tests by experts that guarantee the finest quality.
