Passion for a job well done

Ethics, culture of hard work and humanity. 80 years after it was founded, Varma retains the spiritual inheritance Don Hilario de Mata, Marqués de Vargas, instilled into the company.

CSR

Our commitment to good business practice and environmental protection can be seen in the company's adherence to a strict internal policy of recycling and energy-efficient lighting.

In the Dominican Republic, our rum production plants closely comply with international regulations on protecting the natural environment and recycling organic waste. Furthermore, we ensure that no child labour is used and invest 5% of profit from the distillery into social work that aims to improve the lives of local people.

 

Responsible drinking

As a member of the FEBE (Spanish Federation of Spirit Drinks), Grupo Varma respects legal and voluntary regulations on limiting advertising, with a particular focus on protecting those who are under-age.

All advertising materials that are aimed at the end consumer include a responsible drinking notice and must be approved by Autocontrol Publicitario.
