About Rum Coloma: Rum Coloma was born under the hundred-year-old trees of Hacienda Coloma, the Constain family's country house, built in the late 19th century in Fusagasugá, a village in the heart of Colombia, in the Andes.
Distilled from the juice of two varieties of sugar cane, Ron Coloma is aged by the traditional method in single American oak casks (8 and 15 years) and then finished for months in oak barrels that had previously aged coffee liquor, which gives it its character, length, and great character.
Coloma is finally assembled by Sandra and Judith, the two Maestras Roneras women who today combine more than 50 years of experience.
After finishing in ex-coffee liquor oak barrels, Ron Coloma is then reduced with spring water sourced from the Andean volcanoes, then filtered and bottled at Hacienda Coloma.
