Ron Botucal | German Rum Festival 2023


Destileria Unidas S.A. (DUSA Distillery, est. 1959) is located at the foot of the Venezuelan Andes near the Terepaima National Park and focuses on the traditional production of rum. The entire production is under the supervision of the multiple award-winning Master Distiller Tito Cordero, who has been working at DUSA since 1988.

The production of Botucal products is based on molasses and “Virgin Cane Honey”. Botucal rum is distilled in copper stills and then aged in American white oak barrels (ex-bourbon).

Botucal Reserva ExclusivaBotucal Reserva Exclusiva

The quality “Reserva Exclusiva” is an excellent rum for pure enjoyment. It is composed of 80% heavy and 20% light distillates. The distillates are aged for a maximum of 12 years. The result is a truly exceptional rum that presents the characteristic sweetness and fruity notes in a more concentrated and intense way than the other rum qualities of the product family.

Tasting Notes:

A complex nose full of character evokes memories of fruit cake, rum raisin ice cream, cocoa, cinnamon and cloves. The palate develops notes of rich chocolate sauce, caramel and sweet toffee with a wide variety of tropical fruits. On the finish, this rum is characterized by notes of dark chocolate, vanilla ice cream and orange oil, ending in a powerful and deep finish.

Botucal Ambassador Ambassador Selection

Botucal Ambassador Selection is an exquisite rum. Made from the best rums of the distillery and aged to perfection in white oak barrels.

Its complex sensory profile is rounded off by two additional years of aging in Pedro Ximenez sherry casks.

Botucal Ambassador Selection is bottled directly from the barrel to preserve the full range of its organoleptic characteristics.

Its color resembles dark amber. A well-balanced combination of aromas, including port, cigar box and dried fruit, present themselves on the nose. The palate is complex. Raisins, nutmeg, cinnamon and spices lead to a long and pleasant finish worthy of this exceptional product.

Botucal Ambassador Selection is best enjoyed pure.
