According to the testimony of his descendants, at the end of the 18th Century the Hacienda Botucal bore witness to Don Juancho Nieto Meléndez's burning passion for exploring the sources and processes responsible for the many alluring flavours of traditional beverages.

Don Juancho carefully studied the production methods employed in Jamaica, which at the time set the world standard for the manufacture and appreciation of rum.

The result was a rum that combined an unmistakable character and body with irresistible and subtle aromas, the triumphant expression of his untiring search for a spirit that would go on to captivate the world under the name Ron Diplomático. His search for an exclusive flavour, colour and aroma worthy of being served at the world's finest venues is a living testament to his extraordinary tenacity and dedication. His death in the last century did not mean the end of his legacy. Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva, produced in his honour, is one Venezuela's proudest and most treasured rum exports.


Alfonso - the Latin America & Asia Pacific Export Director from Diplomatico along with John Raphael, join us to present the Diplomatico range. John & Alfonso will discuss the history of this rum and what gives it its unique character.
