Diplomatico Rums

Diplomatico

 

Diplomatico rums are produced in Venezuela by Destilerias Unidas and are ranked consistently among the finest South American rums. With a total of seven stills (three pot and four column) the distillery has been producing top-quality spirits for over 45 years and has achieved huge success both domestically and in leading export markets. The company also supplies the majority of the spirit for Pampero rum, a brand which has enjoyed considerable UK success.

The skill of the master distiller and the craft of the master blender work in perfect harmony in creating the Diplomatico range. This includes age expressions of four, eight and 12 years, differing in character, suggested drinking style and price, but all with the underlying hallmark of a rum of the highest calibre.
