ZAKA Rum

The Collection

Zaka Rum Collection is a range of unique and rare blended rums crafted in the beautiful rum making territories and finest reserves of the world.

After Aging in French and American oak barrels to mature, while respecting each island and country rum traditions, the rich, intriguingly fruity and robust oak notes express themselves.

Every matured rum batch is individually numbered and carefully watched over, each selected rum barrel from each Island, has extraordinary consistency and character from the intense marrying period, and a warming, distinguished finish.

A truly exceptional blended aged rum, the result of not just seven years of care and
attention, but of rum-making craft and knowledge passed down through the Island
generations.

Trinidad:

Zaka Trinidad: the celebration. Trinidad has always been an island renowned for its cultivation of sugarcane. At the end of the 18th century, under British rule, a large amount of rums was exported to England, then blended with other rums originating from the British colonies (Barbados, Jamaica …) under the name “Navy Rum”.

Panama:

Strong ties to the land. In comparison with Trinidad and Mauritius, the production of rum in Panama came much later, in 1908. It was a Spanish immigrant, Don José Varela Blanco, who set up the first mill that was used to grind sugar cane in a city named Tekel.

Mauritius:

Zaka Mauritius: the cultural melting pot. The history of rum in Mauritius is closely linked to the development of the sugarcane industry on the island. The Dutch were not only known as the first settlers but also those who have planted sugarcane imported from Java in 1639, then produced the first “eaux de vie decanne” in 1694.

List of botanicals

Symmetry Spirits

Virgin, unadulterated tonics.
Symmetry Tonics are produced in their true concentrated form, made from whole botanicals with minimal sugar content.

Leonista 100% Karoo Agave

Leonista means “place of the lion” and is the first 100% Karoo agave spirit in South Africa made the traditional way.

The production process follows an age-old recipe used in Mexico to make agave spirits like Mezcal. It requires smoke and fire, hence Leonista’s delicious smokey flavour, similar to that of a Mezcal.

100% agave spirits are the most energy-fueling of all the alcohols if treated with respect.
