Shaw-Ross will focus on the three primary Botran labels, which include Botran Solera, a sophisticated assembly of different rums aged for up to 18 years; Botran Reserva, an exquisite assembly of mature rums aged for up to 15 years; and Botran Reserva Blanca, a light, white rum aged in white American oak for 3 years.

Botran Rum has been the production of a storied Guatemalan family distillery since 1940. The time-honored process the Botran family members have committed themselves to, continues to produce the most treasured rum of their home country. The appreciation for Botran Rum extends globally, reaching across Europe, the Caribbean, Mexico, Central and South America.

The brand will continue to work alongside Emilio Estefan, who became the face of Botran Rum in the U.S. in 2014, and who is featured in the advertising campaign themed The Night Begins with Botran.
