How is Diplomático Mantuano produced?
Diplomático Mantuano is produced on the distillery’s own sugar cane strain, Caña Diplomática, which gives the rum a twist that is not experienced in other rums. The rum is a blend of rum from three different distilling methods. 40% comes from Pot Stills, 20% from Batch Kettle, and the last 40% from Column Stills, creating a great balance between the heavy, complex, and light. The rum is also stored in oak barrels previously used for storing bourbon or malt whisky in the optimal climatic conditions offered by Venezuela. After the maturation phase, the rum is blended by Blend Master Tito Cordero, which was voted the world’s best blender in 2018.
