Aged in American oak ex-bourbon barrels for 4 years, Cihuatán Jade had a crystalline appearance thanks to charcoal filtration prior to bottling. This removes the colour imparted by the oak while also polishing and mellowing the rum.

Gabriela Ayala, Master Blender of Ron Cihuatán, was "inspired the Mayan goddess of the arts, Chac Chel, muse to ancient artists and craftsmen, who used talismans carved in jade to invoke her graces."
