The Santa Teresa brand hails from Venezuela. The Hacienda Santa Teresa is situated in the valleys of Aragua near the capital Caracas on an estate founded way back in 1796. Santa Teresa 1796 is one of the mostly widely recognised “Premium” rums the world over.
To commemorate the Hacienda’s bicentennial in 1996, Santa Teresa, challenged itself to develop a rum that could leverage all of its mastery learned in the first 200 years. Santa Teresa 1796 is a bold and elegant rum with blends up to 35 years aged in bourbon oak barrels, then further aged through the artisanal Solera method resulting in a dry, smooth and balanced rum.
The solera method ensures every Bottle of Santa Teresa 1796 has some of the very first 1796 cask running through it. That’s because the original cask was never emptied. Instead, each time a Bottle is drawn, the cask is topped up with a slightly younger rum. And this is repeated with each and every bottle of Santa Teresa 1796.
Everything about Santa Teresa 1796, from the special pot still rum, to the Solera Method, to the bottling system, and the application by hand of the wax used to seal the cork, makes every bottle a unique and exclusive piece.
Toffee, brown sugar, vanilla and fruity aromas with notes of wood.
Dense richness of nuts, leather, vanilla, cinnamon, dark chocolate, prunes, hints of honey and pepper.
