According to its distillers, Destilerias Unidas S.A. Dusa, “during 2000 a number of factors contributed to rare climatic conditions for sugar cane growth. Firstly there were particularly high temperatures during the day and much cooler nights than expected. This was followed by high humidity and lower than average rainfall, after an extremely wet year in 1999. These contrasting weather conditions played an integral part in creating one of the best sugar cane harvests in Venezuelan history.”
