Diplomatico aged 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 potstills and four column stills) the distillery has been producing top-quality spirits for over 45 years by distilling sugarcane honey in old copper pot stills.
Destilerias Unidas rums have achieved huge success and popularity both at home in Venezuela and in leading export markets e.g. in Spain, the companys Cacique rum sells in excess of 1 million-cases per annum. As a testament to the quality of the rums produced, Destilerias Unidas also supplies the majority of the spirit for Pampero rum, a brand which has enjoyed great success as a premium rum in bars across the UK.
Diplomatico Reserva has a higher proportion of potstill rums aged for an average of eight years. As a result, it is noticeably richer and sweeter than the Anejo, with a delicious silky mouthfeel and exceptional balance.
