The Barbet Column Still was brought to Diplomático’s La Miel distillery in 1959. This continuous distillation system is originally from France. Using high quality sugar cane molasses, the distillate is aged in American white oak barrels until it reaches its optimum maturity, resulting in a unique rum. This system produces a distillate with a strong fruity profile. The single barbet rum combines mango and passion fruit aromas with notes of caramel and oak. On the palate, it is smooth and slightly dry, with delicate wood and fresh citrus fruit flavors.
