Diplomatico Rum Secret Supper 2019, Photos by: What The Doost
It’s no secret that I am passionate about fashion and food. I love dinner parties, unique experiences and good conversations surrounded by great company. Throw in a little Diplomático rum and now we’re cooking with gas! I had the great pleasure of attending a “secret supper” this summer on a beautiful penthouse rooftop garden in downtown NYC and it was an extremely magic evening. The dinner was curated by Colangelo & Partners for Diplomático Rum, and produced by PlaceInvaders. PlaceInvaders is a one-of-a-kind traveling pop-up dining experience, held in other people's quirky, interesting, and remarkable residences — while no one's home. (I mean, how cool is that?)
Diplomático was founded in Venezuela in 1959, with the establishment of the distillery where all of its rums are produced. Today Diplomático is distributed in over 80 countries. It holds the “Ron de Venezuela” DOC (Protected Denomination of Origin) and is recognized as one of the finest rums in the world. Diplomático rums are carefully crafted from premium sugar cane and use a rich variety of distillation methods. This is combined with the Maestro Ronero’s expertise and excellence in the art of blending, to produce the finest rums.
I loved learning about the different notes and processes behind the rums. It was really interesting to try some new age cocktails with this classic spirit, my favorite was
the Jaque Mate (Diplomático Mantuano, Yerba Mate, Cane juice, lime).
