Rich and sweet on the nose, showing aromas of caramel, vanilla, cocoa and banana. On the palate, it is heavy, velvety and smooth, offering similar notes as on the nose. Zaya is a premium aged rum for those looking for both quality and versatility–something to feel confident about in your bar. Whether savoring on the rocks or adding complexity to a cocktail, Zaya is a self-assured rum that can hold its own or play nicely with others depending on what the situation calls for.
“Zaya,” a name that spans multiple cultures and languages, commonly translates to “a triumphant woman.” As we’ve interpreted it, a triumphant woman is one who approaches her life with confidence and a deep sense of self. We honor this name with a self-assured rum that can hold its own when poured into a glass to be enjoyed neat or over ice, or when mixed into a cocktail to add depth and complexity to other flavors.
Often referred to as a Gold Rum, an Aged Rum is one that has been aged in barrels, often Ex-Bourbon or White Oak before bottling. As the Rum continues to age, it draws more and more color and flavor from the wood, adding both body and complexity to the finished product. Aged Rums can be sipped neat or added to cocktails. They fall somewhere in between White and Dark Rums in terms of their respective strength of flavor.
