It is the face of Don Juancho Nieto Melendez that appears on the labels of Diplomatico's wonderful range of Rums and is the inspiration behind the distillery being set up in what is unarguably the stunning setting of the Planas Valley, sitting at the foot of the Andes. He is said to have travelled extensively and built up a collection of spirits referred to as the 'Ambasador's Reserves'. Diplomatico rums tend to be a blend of sugar cane molasses and honeys. The molasses produce their lighter rums whilst the sugar cane honey will be used for the more complex styles.
Sweetness tempered by gentle notes of oak and char.
