Over many years, The Zig siblings expanded their coconut smuggling ring, eventually building a small empire serving boozy coconut cocktails to Miami’s elite and celebrities like Drake, Prince Harry, Martha Stewart and more. Those boozy coconuts would become the inspiration for their next expansion: premium rum.
Danielle “La Jefa” is the brains behind the operation. Before the age of 30, she grew our small coconut operation into an international spirits company.
Mike is the connector. Having grown up between Central America and Miami, he spent the better part of 20 years exploring every inch of Guatemala and El Salvador. His curiosity and connections led him to develop the relationships that have given us exclusive access to a reserve of the world’s finest añejo rums, and of course, our delicious coconut supply.
Together with our syndicate of Farmers, Distillers and Smugglers, we create and distribute products that showcase the world’s most mysterious terroir. We believe Central America is a treasure trove of flavors and culture worth exploring, and we’re excited to share it with you.
