History

AZENDE Corporation reflects the will of an upright and committed group of individuals that have put their companies together under a single name. Progress, prosperity, growth, constant improvements and innovation, identify a corporation that advances each day with passion.

Our origins are rooted in the spirit of the rich lands of the Paute´s valley in Ecuador, where a family company set itself the goal to offer alternatives and high quality products.

From 1966 to the present, the companies that compose AZENDE Corporation have been established as prosperous business based on the commitment to contribute with its activity to the development of Ecuador and to succeed in Latin America.

With their divisions and brands, Zhumir Distillery and JCC Distributor are the mainstays that have led the corporation from the mythical land of the “zhumirales” to the challenging international markets.
