product Details

Diplomatico 2000 Sherry Cask Finish

Destilerías Unidas S.A. (better known as DUSA) was built in 1959 to replace a small local distillery that had been producing on the site at the foot of the Andes mountains for around 15 years. Initially the company was called Licorerías Unidas S.A. (or LUSA), and Canadian distilling giant, Seagram, was the majority shareholder opposite a group of local distillers. Seagram took full control in 1992 but were eventually wound up in 2001, their empire carved up mostly between Pernod-Ricard and Diageo. The companies sold their interests the following year to José R. Ballesteros Melendez, who renamed the company DUSA in the process. The distillery uses both molasses and sugarcane “honey” to produce light and heavy rums, respectively, and has an array of different stills: a five-column continuous still, two double-retort pot stills, a batch kettle and two more computer controlled stainless steel columns.

Diplomatico is a very highly respected rum, due to licensing arrangements this goes by the name Botucal in some regions. This is one of a number of single vintages produced, and has been finished in sherry casks.
