Diplomático Reserve Exclusive
Method and production
Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva is an elegant and complex “sipping” rum, which is produced with the greatest accuracy from the purest honey from the distillery’s own sugar cane. The precious drops are distilled in an old copper distillate and then stored for up to twelve years, in small oak barrels. This unique foundation, with excellent balance, has made the Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva a gathering of Rome lovers and a community of people around the world.
Complex and full of character with notes of maple syrup, orange peel, brown sugar and licorice. The taste of soft caramel will caress the tongue, as an elegant finish.
The history of the Diplomático began in 1959, in Venezuela. At the time, Licorerías Unidas SA (LUSA) owned the distillery, and the main shareholder was Seagram’s International, one of the world’s largest wine and spirits distributors.
In 2002, LUSA was put up for sale, including the distillery and the Diplomático brand. LUSA was put up for sale exclusively in the South American market. A group of Venezuelan entrepreneurs, most of them with extensive experience in the spirits industry, were convinced that the company had potential. They therefore decided to take the chance and made an offer to acquire LUSA. That same year, LUSA became 100% Venezuelan, privately owned and adopted its current name: Destilerías Unidas SA (DUSA).
In 2011, the Master Blender, Mr. Tito Cordero great recognition when he was named the world’s best Master Blender, as the first Venezuelan ever.
Diplomatico has won over 54 medals at international competitions, such as the SIP Awards, San Francisco World Spirits, Miami Rum XP, Monde Selection etc.
The flagship of Diplomatico is their Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva, which is a blend exclusively of rum distillates from pot distillates and then stored for up to 12 years. Reserva Exclusiva is a magnificent example of all that Diplomatico has to offer; characteristic round sweetness, fruity notes and a high intensity in the taste profile.
