About Guatamalan Spirits
Alcoholic spirits in this Central American country are focused on the production of rum and aguardiente. There are various quality and price levels, with the aged añejo rums being the finest, offering notes of roasted nuts, cola and tropical spice. These are fine for mixing, but should be appreciated as sipping rums.
