Teresa holds the honor of being the world’s first solera-style rum; a style that has grown in popularity especially among rums produced in former Spanish colonies. This is made with a blend of rums aged in an American oak cask for up to five years.
Santa Teresa Ron Gran Anejo Reserva. The Santa Teresa brand hails from Venezuela. The Hacienda Santa Teresa is situated in the valleys of Aragua near the capital Caracas. The estate was founded way back in 1796.
Hacienda Santa Teresa grows and harvests their own estate sugar cane. Once the juice is extracted, the remaining molasses is used to produce Santa Teresa rum. The molasses is then fermented for 12-16 hours. The resulting wash of around 8% ABV is then distilled on either a Continuous Column Still or a Copper Pot Still.
Founded in 1796 by the count of Tovar, Hacienda Santa Teresa has been one of Venezuela’s leading rum producers for over 200 years. Ron Anejo is blended from premium rums that have been aged in oak casks between 2 and 5 years, resulting in a smooth, balanced spirit with rich, fruit-forward notes of citrus, coconut, and banana.
