HISTORY

In 1847, in Martos de Jaen, Andalusia (Spain), it was established our first distillery. Later, the business emigrated to Cuba and was introduced in the manufacture of the traditional spirits of the island.

After the War of Cuba in the late nineteenth century, the family returned to Spain empty handed, but with all the experience in his Caribbean adventure from Madrid, focused on the development of spirits, anise, brandy and cazalla.

In the following decades, we experienced steady growth and modernization. Two periods were key to its development:

  • The 60s: We changed from the traditional bulk supply to bottling. It was the beginning of the nationwide distribution and the development of new products.
  • The 90s: Moving of the headquarters to the present location after heavy investment in infrastructure and technology, the beginning of exports and the introduction into the larger retailers market.

Today, TAVASA advances under the direction of the family’s fifth generation.

INFRASTRUCTURE AND PROCESSES

TAVASA has modern facilities in an estate of 40.000m² in Casarrubios del Monte, midway between Toledo and Madrid.
