Since the early sixteenth century sugar cane was grown in the fertile valleys of Aragua. And it was there, in the heart of Venezuela, where the Conde de Tovar y Blanco in 1796 founded the Hacienda Santa Teresa.

The Hacienda Santa Teresa is located in central Venezuela, one of the richest and most fertile valleys of the country rich and sunny land, caressed by winds that maintain a steady pace and spread the generous rainfall throughout the year, with an altitude ideal ensuring cool temperatures at night and warm enough in the day, at Santa Teresa cane harvest sweet and juicy, Venezuela. It is a place for over two hundred years has developed the most important artisan tradition in the distillation and aging of rum, to produce the Ron Santa Teresa, the best rum in the world ...

It all began in the late eighteenth century, even before the establishment of the people around us, which is the people of The Council, in June of 1771 a wealthy landowner owns the land Caracas, 45, named Martin Tovar y Blanco receives King Charles III of Spain on title count, this leads after the September 11, 1772, a letter to his Lordship the Bishop of Venezuela, Bishop Mariano Martí, which calls for the creation of a new parish and construction of a church on the site of the Tuy river banks that could well be the Mammon o Sabaneta.
