Diplomático London event

Last Friday, SB was afforded a lunchtime treat to join Diplomático Rum at London’s Black Parrot bar for an exclusive tasting of its latest release – Diplomático No. 3 Pot Still Rum.

Led by UK brand ambassador Jon Lister and Diplomático maestro ronero Nelson Hernández (pictured), guests were guided through a tasting of the Venezuelan brand’s Distillery Collection – which includes No. 1 Batch Kettle Rum and No. 2 Barbet Rum, as well as No. 3 Pot Still – before being challenged to use all three expressions to create their own blend. Hernández sipped his way through the room’s creations – a brave, brave man.
