Description:
Santa Teresa 1796 is a unique rum, standing above its peers in both quality and process. One of the secrets to this very special rum is the age-old 'Solera' method used for centuries by Spain's brandy and sherry producers.

A careful selection of aged rum is put in the Solera, which consists of a number of rows of casks with each tier holding rums of scaling maturity. The rum to be bottled is drawn exclusively from the row resting on the floor (suelo in Spanish), which contains the oldest rums. A portion of the content of each floor barrel is drawn off, and the barrel then topped off with rums from the one directly above it, and so on.

The top tier of casks is completed with carefully aged rums, some of which are as much as 35 years old, prepared to make the long journey through the Solera to the floor barrels.

To achieve final perfection this sophisticated spirit undergoes a similar "crianza" in large French oak vats before being bottled. The rum remaining in the barrels is also known as "Mother Rum".

Serving Suggestions - straight up or on the rocks.

Producer Information

Founded in 1796 as a
sugar cane and coffee plantation by Count Tovar y Blanco.
Bought by Gustavo Julio Vollmer in 1885 and the first rums were produced.
Santa Teresa was the third trade mark registered in Venezuela and first amongst the rum category in 1909.
Today is the foremost family-owned business in Venezuela (4th generation)
dedicated to the production and distribution of premium aged rums.
Tropical location, altitude and rainfall give the sugar cane greater yields and sugar content than any other region of the world.
Their continuous fermentation and distillation processes produce lighter
alcohols, which are tamer for ageing. They are also able to produce heavier alcohols used for special blends.
Venezuelan regulations require a minimum of 2 years of ageing in oak barrels in order to merit the designation of 'Rum'.
The denomination of origin ?Ron de Venezuela? has been officially granted in 2004 as a beverage of distinctive quality from a
unique region. (Appellation controlee).
