Heritage, social responsibility and rugby! – the recipe for a great 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 responsibility and 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. With more than 200 years of heritage, the distillery prides itself on using only home-grown sugarcane in the production, aging their premium Rum in American white oak and French limousine oak barrels and using the Solera system. The distillery produces a wide range of interesting expressions for every taste and budget, but never compromising on quality.
Santa Teresa Selecto Rum is a blend of Rums aged between 3 and 9 years. First introduced in 1983, its satiny body is attributed to the blend of light and heavy Spirits. The Rum is perfectly drinkable neat, but we have to confess – it makes for a superb mojito. The combination of gentle taste yet full flavour allows this legendary summer cocktail to reveal its full potential. Summer might be over, but you can make this drink your all-seasons summer fling.
