The Diplomat of the finest rums
My passion is discovering the world and its exotic nature. I frequently travel to the Caribbean, exploring the sources and origins of the many alluring flavors of traditional beverages, in particular the finest rums. I am deeply curious about the subtle complexities of the many environmental factors that influence the rum-making process, such as the weather and the humidity of the tropics.
My dream has always been to build an impressive collection of the finest rums, and I enjoy sharing my discoveries with those who love this exquisite spirit as much as I do.To me, the best rum is the one that combines an unmistakable character with subtle aromas; one that reflects my true essence and my adventurous soul.
Don Juancho Nieto Meléndez is the character that inspired the creation of Diplomático. His portrait is illustrated on the label of the brand’s products. According to stories told by people from the region where the distillery is located, he lived nearby at the end of the 19th century.
