The Hacienda Botucal, located on the extensive premises of the Destilerias Unidas in Venezuela, on the edge of the Terepaima Natioanlpark at the foot of the Andes, is the name giver for this rum brand. The farm is dedicated to agricultural projects and since the beginning it has maintained a renowned buffalo farm, a selected breeding program for a domestic cattle breed, and a breeding program for award-winning Venezuelan horses.
The rum production is in the hands of the master distillers of the DUSA distillery founded in 1959. The company focuses on the traditional production of rum based on molasses and Virgin Cane Honey. After distillation in copper distilleries, the rums are then stored in former Bourbon barrels made of American white oak. The entire production has been supervised by the award-winning Master Distiller Tito Cordero since 1988.
In addition to the famous Botucal Matuano, Botucal Reserva Exclusiva, successor of the legendary Diplomatico, the white Rum Botucal Planas, as well as the Single Vintage and the Ambassador Selection, the range has been extended by two more rums, the Distillers Selections 1 and 2.
