History


"My Flor de Fuego is the first legal chaparro from El Salvador".

History


"My Flor de Fuego is the first legal chaparro from El Salvador".
- Chepe Gómez

Meet Mr. Chepe Gómez...

Artisan process of elaboration of Chaparro, Guazapa, El Salvador.

That's how it was born...

Mr. Chepe Gómez, a man who loves his land and the fruits of it, with a great heart, a brave man, an adventurer and a lover of happiness, a summer afternoon when he returned from his work day while admiring the beauty of the landscape that the evening offered him, came to his mind the memories of the stories that he heard as a child from his nana "Mariya", who from the heaven today cares for him, when she narrated him how a men of the field after his work, had few drinks of Chaparro shared with his friends, and how the Mrs. Tibur cured her hips ache drinking a sip of Chaparro, and thought as something that has brought well-being to those who have discussed it, has been denied to great majority, as something so our, so Salvadoran has been hitherto clandestine and ignored as national patrimony, and always seen, even before today, by the goverment as illegal and clandestine.
Then Mr. Chepe thought: "It is time for Salvadorans and the whole world to know this liquor so good, that for many years they have enjoyed very few, but it has been desired by many." And he got to the task of knowing more about the subject, visit the best Chaparreros of the country in the eagerness of an authentic national liquor to be able to produce, made 100% in El Salvador. Not everywhere he was well received, for some of them thought he was another spy or ear of the "cuilia", "chota" or "chaneques", popular words to name the police.
At last, Mr. Chepe got all the permits: the Mayor's office, the Environment Ministry, the Health Unit, among others, and with great pride and love he put to work, in Guazapa, San Salvador, on June 7, 2010, the first Sacadera legally established in El Salvador, and his first Chaparro "Flor de Fuego", happily baptized. And in spite of the others, Mr. Chepe is the only one who can say: "My Flor de Fuego is the first legal Chaparro of El Salvador."
And so the story was born when Mr. Chepe Gomez built,  begining the task of inheriting a Brand for El Salvador. In the past years, Mr. Chepe has succeeded in ensuring that Salvadorans recognize Chaparro as a 100% national liquor, from its creation to its commercialization.
Mr. Chepe as a proud Salvadoran, will not stop until the world recognized Chaparro as a Salvadoran liquor protected by a Designation of Origin.

The Chaparro's Story


The liquors sensitize our spirit, accompanies us in these moments where we need that the joy arises without impediments.

What is Chaparro?

Since ancient times, events related to liquor or wine have been narrated in the history, each culture or region by its geographical condition, its climate and cultures of origin, obtained its elements that finally transform in independent ways to obtain its own alcoholic beverage.

For Mesoamerica, where its main source of food was corn, it was found its alcoholic beverage. The Chicha, as it has been called since pre-Columbian times, is still an alcoholic beverage made from fermented corn.

Originally because there was no sugar cane, fermentation was produced 100% maize, the children (because they were pure) were put to chew the corn kernels, and the effect of the saliva in these produced that the enzymes that in the Maize are able to produce alcohol in a fermentation process where the grains were fed the same sugary material that it possesses. That was the Chicha of the Mayas, of the Aztecs and the Incas, made 100% Maize.

In colonial Mesoamerica, there was a transculturation where it was adopted from religions, foods and lifestyles among others. Sugar cane, a sweet grass, is an inheritance that the Spaniards brought to us and that came to enrich and strongly impact the gastronomy of Pre-Columbian America. It was thus that in the panela (sugar not processed in an industrial way) was found a source not only of Chicha flavor but a way of producing more alcoholic beverages.

In the history of El Salvador, the growth of cities always turned around economic centers of growth, where cities near the ports or our classic export crops for their economic activity, allowed the opening of distilleries which were initially owned and administered by the goverment, thus giving rise to the production of fiery waters made from sugar cane molasses, where each city had its own liquor. 

In the case of the north of the country, specifically the departments of Chalatenango and Cabañas, colonists did not live to inhabit areas with indigenous settlements, on the contrary, to the present day the inhabitants of these areas their physiognomy is characterized by having white skin complexion, the light-eyed color and its rather thin features compared to those of an average Salvadoran.

The geography and climatic conditions of these areas continue to be a challenge to activate them economically, because they are not fertile lands for the classic crops of the country, and never had a development pole so they did not have a distillery that produced the liquor.

The settlers of the zone with Spanish customs, where in regions of Spain it is common for the citizens to distill their own orujos or aguardientes, they elaborated their own artesanal stills to which they were called sacaderas and they found in the chicha enriched with panela, the perfect wine to distill.
As it was a scheme of production that was outside the legality of the fiscal, its operation was 100% clandestine.

Chaparro Tree, Guazapa, San Salvador.

Why it's named Chaparro?

In these areas, the Chaparro Tree is very easily found. Its main characteristic is that its firewood produces very little smoke when used as a source of heat, so that the clandestine producers hid their Sacaderas in the middle of the mountains and used the wood of the tree of Chaparro to make their distillations, thus the wood of the tree of Chaparro helped to them to be clandestine Sacaderas
Product of using the wood of the tree of Chaparro for its distillation is that today the liquor is called with that name Chaparro.

That's how it started.

Mr. Chepe Gómez, like all indomitable Salvadoran, wanted to put his heart fun and creative, when the Sacadera Flor de Fuego in his mind he thought, and thus began the arduous work of investigating and developing the drink of the Chaparro, to give El Salvador a new honor.

Although always seems to know more than he really knows, Mr. Chepe had to decide different professionals to look for, all in order to create new products, and together they started the production of Chaparro Flor de Fuego, made with great quality his formula, its bottle, its vignette, each one, in its place, step by step with firmness for a Chaparro of great quality in the position market.
And Chepe Gómez's team discovered the fine quality of the product that was distilled, preserving the traditional recipe of the Chaparreros of El Salvador, and among all decided to make similarly that fine liquor, which with corn and dulce de panela does not have Nothing to envy the best liquors known worldwide.

Cheers to a very National production!

And finally the team of Mr. Chepe understood that the success of the chaparro is due to the fact that, in Sacadera Flor de Fuego, the liquor we produce adds love, fun and quality, among many other things, that can not be packaged, with such as to make our Chaparro an Authentic National Pride.

A morning, Mr. Chepe awoke, and worried his map of El Salvador sought,
Because he wanted to identify in which place, his Sacadera Flower of Fire to locate,
So all those who want to enjoy and a rich Chaparro buy,
Can easily arrive.

And he observed the coast and the El Bálsamo mountain range, and the different valleys of the national territory, but he was convinced that to put something close to the noise of San Salvador was the best. And in Guazapa, Mr. Juvenal Leiva, the famous Mayor, the doors of the Municipality opened to him. Finally, at kilometer 24 and a half, the Troncal del Norte road found a beautiful place that life decided to give again. It is where over the years it has become El Corredor del Chaparro, and Guazapa has very proudly named itself as the cradle of Chaparro Flor de Fuego.
And since then every morning Mr. Chepe Gómez walks through the garden in front of the Sacadera, enjoying the view of the hill, under the mango tree and the Maquilishuat in flower, without missing the Fire Tree that he sowed, and every May flowers, And go and fill the scene with color, and with great courage they all start in Sacadera Flor de Fuego to full 7 in the morning, to distill love.
