Diplomatico controls its production process from field to bottle with a care for the local environment and its people and has been awarded for its sustainable practices.

DISTILLATION AND THE ART OF BLENDING

Diplomatico utilises a range of different stills to create 3 distinctly different rum profiles, Pot Stills from Scotland, Barbet Column from France and the Batch Kettle from Canada. Diplomatico Planas is made up of 50% heavy Pot Still rums, aged for up to 6 years which gives great texture and complexity.

In 2009, DUSA received the ISO 14001 certification for environmental awareness which is renewed every 2 years. Diplomatico have made a commitment to the environment and have put several sustainable practices into place, in which; 100% liquid waste is used as organic fertiliser on the cane fields, and 100% solid waste is recycled. They have also halved their water consumption.

Mantuano

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.

Aged for up to eight years in the tropical climate of the Caribbean, with notes of dried plums, toffee, cinnamon, nutmeg and tropical fruits, Diplomático Mantuano is designed for mixing and sipping alike.

From a classic pot still, to the unique Batch Kettle and the lighter distillates from the Barbet Column, the rums are expertly created by the Master Blenders. Mantuano contains aged components from all three of these stills which results in an easy drinking rum that enhances any cocktail.

Enjoy Diplomatico Mantuano with ginger ale or stirred down in a rum Negroni by pairing 30ml Diplomatico Mantuano with 30ml Cocchi Vermouth di Torino and 30ml Campari in a rocks glass over ice and garnishing with an orange wedge.


Planas

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.

Diplomatico Planas is surprisingly intense for a white rum with plenty of rich flavours. Fresh and tropical aromas of ground coffee and coconut, with citrus zest, toffee and marshmallow. The oily texture and well balanced sweetness mean this is delicious to sip neat and mix in cocktails.

Named after the distillery’s location, at the foothills of the Andes mountains. Diplomático Planas is made from both sugar cane honey and molasses and distilled using a multitude of different stills, which each give different flavour profiles. The high percentage of aromatic heavy rum brings added complexity and body to Planas.

Diplomatico Planas is ideal for upgrading classic white rum cocktails like Daiquiri, Piña Colada or Espresso Martini. It’s also perfect for pairing with a zesty ceviche or fresh seafood.

When creating Planas, Diplomatico wanted to shake up the ‘White’ Rum category and change preconceptions by releasing a complex aged sipping rum that also happens to be colourless. The combination of a high percentage of heavy pot still and bottling at a 47% abv, the creamy coconut, vanilla and tropical fruit notes shine though when mixing too.


Selección de Familia

Diplomático Selección de Familia is an exceptional, super-premium rum celebrating the brand’s expertise, heritage and provenance. The rum is silky, full bodied and complex, perfect for sipping.

Primarily distilled in copper pot stills combined with batch kettle and column distillation, the rums are aged for up to 12 years in American white oak, ex-Bourbon and ex-Sherry casks.

It shows aromas of sugar cane, honey and red fruits followed by delicate spices, oak and toffee notes for a well-rounded and long finish.
