Diplomático’s Master Blender, Tito Cordero, and DUSA recognized at the 2013 Golden Rum Barrel Awards.
Diplomático Rum has added two more important awards to its already extensive list of accolades this past week. DUSA was recognized with the Best Distillery Award and Tito Cordero, Master Blender for the past 24 years, was named Master Blender of the Year.
The awards were announced last month as part of the prestigious U.K. Rum Fest. This was the first time ever that a Venezuelan distillery received this honor and only the second time a Master Blender has received this honor.
Ian Burrell, founder of the UK Rumfest and the Golden Barrel Awards added, “This year’s Golden Rum Barrel Awards plays tribute to the pioneers in the industry. Rums rising popularity throughout the world can be attributed to many of these esteemed individuals or brands and we are thrilled to announce such an incredible range of distillers, master blenders, ambassadors and rum blends from all over the world.”
