Diplomatico N°1 leads of this series of special limited editions made exclusively from Rum distilled on a rare Kettle still and aged six years in ex-Bourbon casks.

The Licorerías Unidas S.A Distillery was founded in 1959 deep in the heart of Venezuela in partnership with Seagrams. The partnership was very successful, supporting Rum production in the Seagrams portfolio for decades. During the acquisition binge of the 1990s, Seagrams was largely acquired by industry giant Diageo who already had a large production capacity. Seeing an opportunity, local management and entrepreneurs bought the distillery and the Diplomatico brand from Diageo in 2002, renaming it Distilería Unidos. Today they produce a wide array of quality Spirits under family ownership.

Distilería Unidos has long practiced a variety of distilling techniques. The famously have several different still types that they use with intent and craftsmanship to create different flavor profiles. They created the new "Distillery Collection" to highlight the effects of each type of still on the Spirit.

Diplomatico N°1 Batch Kettle Rum is, as you might have guessed, created from Spirits exclusively created on an antique copper Kettle still on site. The Kettle still at Distilería Unidos was originally used for Whiskey-making in Canada, but was installed in Venezuela at the third still in 1959. To complete the profile, it’s aged for six years in ex-Bourbon casks. The result is a delicious Rum with a more "Whiskey-esque" flavor profile.


Smartass Corner:
A Kettle still is a batch still similar to a Pot still and Alembic still, but with a straighter side and simple discharge neck.

Rum is a sugar cane based spirit, primarily made in the Caribbean and Latin America, but you can really find Rum in many corners of the world.
Mount Gay Rum is the oldest existing Rum company in the World dating back to 1705. This is also the year Guy Fawkes tried to blow up Britain’s Parliament.
A little bit of etymology; nobody really knows where the word Rum comes from. The most popular suggestions are Rum (the Romani word for 'potent'), Rumbullion (an uproar), Saccharum (sugar in Latin), and Rummer (a Dutch drinking glass).
Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
