Cacique is a Venezuelan brand of rum first marketed in 1959. It is not the top-selling rum in Venezuela, as Santa Teresa is, but it's almost there. The Cacique product lines are owned by Diageo, the largest multinational beer, wine and spirits company in the world. The word "cacique" (a loan from Taíno or Arawak languages) means "chief of the tribe" in Spanish.
It comes in several varieties, starting with the simplest Cacique Origen and then moving up to the Cacique 500. The most expensive is the Cacique Antiguo.
