Rugby & Rum!
If Santa Teresa has taught us one thing, it is that nothing goes better together than Rugby and Rum. Situated in Venezuela, the historical Hacienda Santa Teresa has a rugby pitch on the grounds, allowing for the perfect way for workers to blow off some steam in their lunch hour. The distillery also supports The Alcatraz Project that sets out to rehabilitate ex-gang members by teaching them teamwork. The ethos of teamwork is one that runs throughout the company, who see their role in distilling as part of a wider team as well.
The Santa Teresa 1796 is a vatted Rum, made using the solera system. The ages of the Rums included range from 8 to 12 years old. The casks used in this process are American oak that has been used for Spanish sherry and brandy, After maturation the Rum was finished in Bourbon casks, giving it that added wooded sweetness. The Rum combines dull smoky notes with highlights of sweetness and tangy bitterness from dark chocolate. This is amazing Rum that will suit all tastes, as well as any Rum aficionados out there
