Santa Teresa is a Venezuelan, family-owned rum distillery built on over 200 years of tradition, refining and improving the techniques of rum making. Founded in 1796 and located in the mountainous Aragua valley; a state with the ideal temperature conditions for aging rums, ranging from humid heat during the day to dry cold at night, facilitating the chemical, yet seemingly magical, exchange between wood and alcohol. Honouring the traditions and artisanal new methods, turning Santa Teresa into Venezuela’s leading rum producer, a position maintained to this day. We have been developing, refining and passing along those very special skills for generations. In the most challenging circumstances, Santa Teresa has been transforming adversity to opportunity in Venezuela.
Santa Teresa has become a source of inspiration. Project Alcatraz is a program that recruits criminal gangs, rehabilitates then and reinserts them into society. Also, promotes rugby games into the hacienda where the values of respect, discipline, teamwork, sportsmanship and humility are taught as keys to success in life.
