Diplomatico Distillery Collection No 3 Pot Still Rum

, ,

Diplomatico Distillery Collection No 3 Pot Still Rum is the one of three limited editions as part of Diplomatico’s Distillery Collection, showcasing the diverse variety of stills and styles used to create the Diplomatico rum range.

Diplomatico Distillery Collection No 3 Pot Still Rum is created in the copper pot still that was first used at Diplomático’s La Miel distillery in 1959. This discontinuous distillation system was originally used in Scotland to produce whisky. The pot still uses sugarcane honeys and a prolonged fermentation process. The spirit is then filled into small American white oak barrels to age.

It is described as having aromas of red and tropical fruits with toffee and vanilla. On the palate, the flavours develop into wood combined with coffee and dark chocolate. Best served neat or on the rocks or in an old fashioned.

Extremely limited quantities.
