Diplomatico N°1 Batch Kettle 70cl 47°
- Limited Edition -
Made from the best honey from sugar cane, this intense golden rum is distilled 100% Batch Kettle and then aged in American white-oak barrels, which makes it both complex and balanced. It has notes of caramel, wood and red fruits.
The Batch Kettle was installed at the Diplomatico distillery in 1959. This semi-continuous distillation method, originally from Canada, is traditionally used for the production of American whiskeys.
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.
