Diplomático Mantuano (meaning “Nobleman”) is an authentic blend of sugar cane honey and molasses-based rums created at the foot of the Andes Mountains in Venezuela.

With notes of dried plums, toffee, cinnamon, nutmeg and tropical fruits, Diplomático Mantuano is designed for mixing in long drinks or cocktails.


An unusual “white” rum, Diplomático Planas is aged in oak casks for up to six years and is charcoal filtered to remove the colour, resulting in a smooth, flavourful rum.

Named after the distillery’s location, the rum is made from both sugar cane honey and molasses and distilled using a multitude of different stills, which each give different flavour profiles.

Fresh and tropical aromas of ground coffee and coconut, with citrus zest, toffee and marshmallow. The well-balanced sweetness means that this is delicious to sip neat and mix in cocktails.
