Spirits: rum, aged rum, white rum, whiskey, liqueurs.

  LICORERIAS UNIDAS, S.A. was incorporated in 1959 in Lara State to supply the local market with high quality spirits. Seagram -one of the leading spirits producing and marketing firms in the world-was the major partner in this venture and brought its know-how and technical support into the local upstart. More recently, Seagram has acquired 100% of Licorerías Unidas, turning it into its producing subsidiary. This industrial spirits powerhouse currently produces whisky, vodka, gin, brandy, liqueurs. But most of all, Licorerías Unidas produces rum brands, which makes it one of the most versatile spirits producing industries in the world.

This facility, located in La Miel, Lara State, has expanded and increased its output capacity to the point that it can distill, age and bottle more than 3.5 million cases per year (more than 31 million bottles). Licorerías Unidas rum brands have been granted the local official Norven quality certification, and its industrial facility was honored in 1995 as the only spirits producing plant in Latin America to be granted the ISO 9000 international quality certification.
