Diplomatico Distillery Collection No 1 Batch Kettle Rum

, , ,

Diplomatico Distillery Collection No 1 Batch Kettle Rum is the one of two limited editions in the first release of the Distillery Collection, showcasing the diverse variety of stills and styles used to create the Diplomatico rum range.

The Batch Kettle Still was brought to Diplomático’s La Miel distillery in 1959. This discontinuous distillation system is originally from Canada, where it was employed for the production of whisky. This system is characterized by a batch distillation, which means that a certain volume of fermented liquid is introduced for distillation and, as this is gradually depleted, it leaves a residue or water, which is drained off to be added to the next batch. This system is controlled by the Maestros Roneros, and is considered a semi-artisanal system.

Diplomatico Distillery Collection No 1 Batch Kettle Rum is matured in American white oak barrels (ex bourbon, ex malt) aged up to 6 years. The blend profile is 100% semi-heavy rums.

Bold nose which combines sweet and fruity aromas, wild flowers and vanilla notes for a delicious balance. Its elegance continues in the palate where delicate wood tannins are complemented by notes of toasted caramel and ripe red fruit flavors, ending in a soft, sweet and lingering aftertaste. Best served neat or on the rocks.

The Diplomatico Distillery Collection No 2 Barbet Rum is also available in limited quantities.
