How is the Diplomático Distillery Collection Nº3 Pot Still produced?
As its name suggests, diplomático Nº3 Pot Still is distilled into the copper Pot Still system, which was introduced at Diplomático’s La Miel distillery in 1959. This distillation system was originally used in Scotland for the production of whisky. The rum matures on small casks of American white oak until it reaches its optimum maturity after 8 years, resulting in a complex and delicious rum.
