This is a blog that will take you through the Rum lifestyles of a fine group of people that enjoy the fun and pleasure of fine rums. We will travel to distilleries, partys, and Rum Events to bring you the Rumstyles of all those we come in contact with.
Global Travel Retail has rolled out a one-liter format of its Santa Teresa 1796
Single Estate Rum, exclusively in travel retail.The one-liter format is available initially
in Lagardère stores at Paris Charles De Gaulle Airport.The company took on the global distribution of the family-owned Ron
Santa Teresa portfolio in January 2017.
Santa Teresa Cane Fields
Teresa 1796 is grown, harvested, aged and each bottle is hand-sealed, as a
single estate rum using the Solera method – where no barrel is fully emptied,
the most recent blends mixing and ageing with the oldest. The blend is a
combination of rums, aged from four to 35 years. The Solera method takes sugar cane grown on
the Santa Teresa estate and juices it to extract the molasses, which are then
taken to the estate distillery. Water used in the rum production comes from
natural wells deep in the estate land. Continuous
fermentation and distillation in pots stills is followed by long ageing in
French oak barrels with refinement in oak vats, before hand-blending by maestro
Ronero, with every bottle wax sealed by hand.
To support the launch, a team of in-store ambassadors will introduce and
explain the story behind the Venezuelan rum brand. Shoppers can sample the rum
in a series of sampling events across key airports globally.

Birch, managing director of Bacardi GTR, said: “There is strong potential in
travel retail for a super-premium rum like this, especially in terms of its age
and craft, appealing to shoppers at the second stage of luxury whose key
purchase motivations are for aged spirits and the discovery of something rare
and out of the main-stream. For the same reasons, we also see an opportunity to
recruit new rum shoppers from the whisky category.” Bottled at 40% abv, Santa Teresa 1796 is
available in global travel retail in one-liter bottles at $60.
