70 • Resident August 2012 Award winning Venezuelan rum, DIPLOMÁTICO, has splashed on to the scene in the Hamptons this summer as the Hamptons hottest new rum.
Celebrating its 20th year of rum production, DIPLOMÁTICO produces five distinct rums including Blanco, Anejo, Reserva, Reserva Exclusiva and Ambassador with each offering its own flavor. The Blanco, or premium white rum, offers a sophisticated palate perfect for mojitos, daiquiris and other mixed cocktails.
The Anejo is the youngest of the rum family offering a creamy taste perfect match for a rum punch or rum and coke.
The Reserva, an 8-year-old rum, is rich and full while the Reserva Exclusiva is a premium aged (12 years) sipping rum, the most awarded of the rums. The Ambassador is a 47% ABV rum aged 14 years in sherry casks and is produced in limited quantity, only 1600 bottles made per year. DIPLOMÁTICO has launched in the Hamptons this summer with several weekly events featuring drink specials at Hamptons hotspots.
