A truly single estate production makes the Ron Abuelo so great

Varela currently employs around 500 employees, all of which are locals from the area. The Ron Abuelo distillery is a "single estate" product, because each step of the production is managed and controlled from one distillery.

The home-grown sugarcane is harvested for the production by hand and is placed for further processing in the distillery.

The sugarcane juice needed for the Rum is removed from the plants, fermented and then distilled. The waste products, which are of no importance for the production, nevertheless contribute their part to the Rum production.

The shredded waste products are burned as waste material, and the heat generated is used for the boiler and the distilleries.

Distinctive complexity derives from unique combinations of the Ron Abuelo

The Ron Abuelo series currently consists of four beverages: Anejo, Abuelo 7 year old , Abuelo 12 year old and Abuelo Centuria, a 30 year aged Rum exclusive class, which was presented at the 100 th anniversary of the family business. The Rums are products of two different distillates, which are carefully blended together. One Rum is a touch stronger, while the second Rum is somewhat milder and softer and particularly fruity. This unique combination ensures the Ron Abuelos distinctive complexity.
