Diplomatico Mantuano 70cl 40°
Diplomatico offers us a new rum with this version Mantuano, a hybrid between Spanish and English rum. It is a very balanced rum, aged up to 8 years in barrels of Bourbon and malt.
A cuvée developed in tribute to Don Juancho Nieto Meléndez, the illustrious character who inspired this brand and whose portrait adorns the labels of all bottles.
Drier than the Diplomatico Reserva version, this Mantuano is perfect for mixology (making cocktails).

At the end of the 19th century, in Venezuela, Don Juancho Nieto Meléndez discovered a passion for sources and methods making the success of traditional beverages.
He was fascinated by the subtle complexities of surrounding factors such as sunlight and humidity that affect the production of rum. He collected both liqueurs and exotic rums and became famous for his well-stocked supplies quickly nicknamed the "Ambassador Reserves" in reference to his status and his love for good things in life.
He studied production methods used in Jamaica, a reference in the field at the time. On other islands of the Antilles, he scrupulously observed the refining of sugar cane and imagined variations to create a new type of rum. Over time, a clever combination of ingredients, wooden barrels and honey led Don Juancho to create Ron Diplomático.
