About the Rum:
To commemorate the Hacienda’s bicentennial in 1996, Alberto Vollmer Herrera, member of the 4th generation of the family, challenged the company to develop a rum that could leverage all its mastery learned in the first 200 years.
The Hacienda Santa Teresa is where it all happens. From harvesting the sugarcane to bottling, the process of rum making takes place in the Aragua Valley with the perfect environmental conditions for aging rum.
Our Maestro Ronero, Nestor Ortega, slowly develops all the flavors through our artisanal production process, so that every sip offers a new layer of sophistication.
Santa Teresa 1796 is:
RICH because our Maestro Ronero blends up to 30 casks of rum to make each batch of Relleno de Solera.
REFINED because our traditional Solera slowly marries our oldest rums with our new blends, transforming them into a single rum of unparalleled texture and balance.
DRY because, when you start with the best ingredients, and you employ the highest caliber of craftsmanship, you don’t need to mask the flavors with a load of sugar – that’s why a bottle of Santa Teresa 1796 contains less than half a teaspoon of sugar, guaranteeing an unexpectedly dry finish.

"This rum shows a beautiful burnished almond hue and a beautiful nose of dried tobacco, fig cookie, brown sugar, orange blossom, and vanilla cake. These decadent flavors cascade across the palate which is both sweet and savory with a slightly herbaceous bite."
