Pure spring water

In Destilería Carúpano, the water used to make the rum comes from either a spring or a deep well, this ensures a greater purity guaranteeing that there will be no undesirable odors or flavors.

A demanding environment

A strict legal framework and an important competitive environment that forces us to improve our products in a progressive and planned manner. In Venezuela there are numerous brands of high quality rum, and many brands are endorsed by the C.D.O., so the competitive standards are very high. This inspires us, every day, to seek to have greater quality products to conquer the Venezuelan palates

An exceptional microclimate

Destilería Carúpano is located in the Hacienda Altamira in the Macarapana-Carúpano valley, a low altitude area at sea level where a particular microclimate develops with a high degree of relative humidity from Caribbean Sea breezes and high temperatures, as a result, the time required for aging is accelerated, optimized and intensified.

More than 250 years of Rum Mastery

Our ability to produce a wide and unlimited range of distillates. Meaning, to produce in a standardized and parallel way, distillates with different degrees of differentiation in the same category and in different categories among themselves. Our techniques and our experience have allowed us to identify subtle differences between products that are attractive to even the most demanding palates. In addition, this area of expertise is combined with sensory evaluations and consumer knowledge to offer attractive brands, in intriguing bottles with an authentic product quality.

Controlled Designation of Origin

Venezuela’s extraordinary natural bounty never ceases to amaze; vast amounts of treasures and wealth grow spontaneously from its richness. Rums made in Venezuela are in a different category to those produced in other countries because of their special attributes, a direct result of the combination of a series of unique elements:

The high level of sucrose

Present in the sugar cane that is used as a raw material. This results in the production of high quality molasses.

The tropical climate

High temperatures during the day followed by cooler nights coupled with the presence of high humidity, act as a catalyst in the physio-chemical process of maturation and prompts the interaction between the wood in the white oak barrels and the alcohol stored inside them. These climatic conditions also have a significant impact on the speed of the maturation process allowing the sugar cane distillates to age up to three times faster than they would in other countries.


American white oak barrels or casks. The aging must be done in closed barrels, meaning that the loss from evaporation cannot be refilled. This results in the highest quality aged rum with a color, aroma, viscosity, and flavor that is unique to Venezuela. The final product must be a minimum of 40 percent alcohol by volume or 80 proof.
