In addition to this InnoTRI will unveil travel retail exclusive launch Cihuatán Obsidiana .Cihuatán Obsidiana is the Salvadoran distillery’s first travel retail exclusive rum. Obsidiana was sacred to all Maya, an enigmatic stone forged by the fire of god-sent lightning. Obsidiana was thus the ultimate gift from the Gods of Xibalba, its opalescent beauty used in intricate embellishments and its sharp edges as supreme protection. The Mayan Goddess Itzpapalotl was the embodiment of Mayan Obsidiana, known as the “Obsidian Butterfly” whose ornate wings were carved out of this precious stone. She would rise from Xibalba to keep travelers company and protect them under her magnificent wings.

Cihuatán Obsidiana exclusive traveler’s edition inspired by the sublime concept of Mayan Obsidiana, in which beauty and strength become one. This unique premium rum blend is a rich composition with notes of lychee, cinnamon, fresh guarapo and toasted cashed nuts, and is reserved specially for the world traveler.

"During the exclusive launch event on October 2nd, 2019 – our industry friends and partners will be able to take a first look at the product and taste this unique and extraordinary rum creation," shares Henkel.
