Authentically-Crafted Venezuelan Rum and Unique Taste




Diplomático, an authentically-crafted Venezuelan rum is crafted from locally-sourced sugar cane and distilled at the foot of the Andes Mountains using a unique system of three styles: column still, batch kettle and pot still.

As the Super-Premium Rum category continues to surge*, Diplomático is a category leader, disrupting consumers’ perceptions of what rum can be.


Additionally, Jose Luis Ballesteros was recently appointed as National Brand Ambassador. Jose Luis is a fourth-generation member of the founding family of Diplomático, and has spent a lifetime learning about all facets of the brand, ultimately finding his passion in bringing the taste of it to the world (full bio HERE).
