Diplomático Distillery Collection Tasting Night – Newcastle Rum Club
Taste Diplomático’s Traditional Range as well as the first Distillery Collection releases including the Diplomático No. 1 Batch Kettle Rum and Diplomático No. 2 Barbet Rum.
The Batch Kettle still 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. 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.
The Batch Kettle still system consists of two columns: the Aldehyde Column, in which the undesired elements are separated from the rest of the liquid, and the Rectifying Column where only the desired elements are kept. This rectification system is not found in other traditional column systems. It is unique to this design and is what gives the characteristic fruity profile to the distillate obtained. The Barbet Column Still was brought to Diplomático’s La Miel distillery in 1959. This continuous distillation system
is originally from France.
