Launched in 2011, Diplomatico Rum Liqueur is based on a 50/50 blend of column still and pot still rums. At a mere 120 grams per litre, the low sugar content of this liqueur is barely above the 100 g/l minimum levels required in the EU for products to be termed liqueurs.

Clear, polished copper-coloured.
Aromas of muscovado sugar, with spiced honey and a hint of oak.
Just enough sweetness to balance the strength of the rum and accentuate the pot still flavours. Fruity notes emerge with vanilla and slightly spiced oak, all smoothed with a thick layer of rich honey.
The heat and power of the pot still rums is more obvious in the lasting finish.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
