- Limited Edition -
Made from quality sugar cane molasses, this shiny golden rum is 100% distilled in a Bardet column and then aged in American white oak barrels. Its aromatic profile is fruity, creamy and smoky.
The column Barbet was brought to the Diplomatico distillery in 1959. This method of continuous distillation was designed at the end of the 19th century by the French Emile Barbet.
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.
