DUSA’s distillery lies at the foot of the Andes Mountains in Venezuela. Its location was carefully selected to be in close proximity to the main sugar processing plants in the area and the nearby Terepaima National park, which provides the purest of waters for the rums’ production.
Weather was also a determining element in the selection of the distillery’s location. It plays a key role in sugar cane production, fermentation and rum ageing.
Thanks to the ideal conditions mentioned above, premium ingredients, and the utmost care put into the production process, Diplomático rums have received multiple awards. The distillery’s unique production process was recognized with a “Rum Barrel Award” (London Rum Fest – UK) in 2013 for the World’s Best Rum Distillery.
Diplomatico Anejo Venezuela Rum is the youngest of the Diplomatico family, with 4 years old with Column still distillation process.
