Nothing goes together like hiking and rum. What a way to warm the cockles after a long sweaty day trekking up and down Guatemalan mountains!! Straight rum tastes better in the highlands; no need for pesky ice (or even glasses).
Ron Botran 5 Años is the latest in our exploration of Guatemala’s second best rum producer (second out of two, that is). It went down particularly well in a hot chocolate at the end of the days 20km trek and could even be said to have medicinal qualities by aiding as a partial muscle relaxant. Mmm, justifying drinking. Sounds like it should come right after denial on the symptoms list.
