Diageo Great Britain will be introducing Pampero Especial, its Venezuelan golden rum brand, in the UK from next month.

The company said today (4 June) that Pampero, an 'anejo' rum, is currently available in several global markets, the biggest being Italy, Venezuela and Chile.

Neil Skinner, innovation manager, Diageo Europe said: "It is a truly exceptional liquid and a complementary addition to the brands we already offer in our premiums and luxury portfolio."

Diageo GB will also be introducing Pampero Aniversario to select outlets.

The company added that there are no current plans for a wider launch.
