Ron Cihuatán Nikté is a limited edition rum crafted as an homage to the mystique of Kay Nikté, the Mayan festival of flowers. In an enchanting celebration held beneath the crescent moon’s light, the Maya would offer a sea of sacred petals to the moon goddess. Only 17,914 precious bottles of this rum will be released globally.
To create this enchanting rum, Gabriela Ayala, Cihuatán’s Master Blender, was inspired by the mystical Queen of the Night, also known as Sac Nicté in Nahuat (“sac” means white). This elusive flower blooms for only one night, filling the air with its enticing aroma of raw honey and jasmine. It wilts before dawn. In Nikté, Gabriela captured the unforgettable experience of witnessing the queen’s fleeting bloom. She discovered this blossom as a child, in her grandmother’s garden.
