Resulting from a blend of spirits, some of which aged up to 35 years old, Santa Teresa 1796 has been voted "Best Rum of the World" several times. This complex rum shows incredible flavours of banana, caramel, tobacco, honey and nuts.
This bold and elegant rum blend is aged in Bourbon oak barrels, then processed using the artisanal Solera method. The set is rich with an unexpected dry finish. This intricate craft infuses a variety of subtle flavours and aromas into Santa Teresa 1796.
This rum was created in 1996 to commemorate the bicentenary of the family and independent Hacienda Santa Teresa. The fourth generation of the Vollmer family (Alberto J. Vollmer) challenged the Master Distillers to make the best rum in the world. The end result is Santa Teresa 1796.
Hacienda Santa Teresa is an independent family-owned distillery in Venezuela founded in 1796 and built on more than 220 years of tradition in blended and aged rums, making it the third oldest rum producer in the world. The Vollmer family has managed this distillery for five generations.
Its elaboration process starts with the fermentation of molasses, either batch after batch (between one or two days) or continuously during 15 hours (a process co-developed with Bacardi) yielding a four times purer must. These different musts may be distilled in columns to obtain an alcohol with a desired amount of congeners, or craft distilled in pot stills. The maturation is done in tanks up to 18.000 liters capacity or in solera. Worldwide renowned for its quality and originality, the “Ron de Venezuela” became one of the first Appelation of Controlled Origin.
