Founded in 1959 by the Canadian giant Seagram, the Licorerias Unidas SA (LUSA) distillery was bought in 2002 by local entrepreneurs and renamed DUSA (Destilerias Unidas SA). This marks the start of the export of the Diplomatico brand, hitherto marketed only in Venezuela.
Located in the Andean Valley of the Planas, in the heart of the Termepaima National Park, the DUSA also includes the Botucal estate, a farm providing part of the raw material used for its rums. The molasses used thus comes from sugar cane grown on the estate's plantations, while the discontinuous distillation is carried out in old stills imported from Scotland.
