DISCLAIMER
 
The Prospectus does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any notes in any jurisdiction to any person to whom it is unlawful to make the offer or solicitation in such jurisdiction. The distribution of the Prospectus and the offer or sale of notes under the Prospectus may be restricted by law in certain jurisdictions.
 
Persons into whose possession the Prospectus or any notes offered and sold under the Prospectus may come must inform themselves about, and observe, any such restrictions on the distribution of the Prospectus and the offering and sale of notes. In particular, please note that the information contained in this announcement may be addressed to and/or targeted at persons who are residents of particular countries only and is not intended for use and should not be relied upon by any person outside these countries.
 
Diageo has filed a registration statement with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for the offering of the notes to which this communication relates. The Prospectus shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy securities either in the United States or any other jurisdiction, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration and qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction. Any public offering of notes in the United States is being made solely by means of a prospectus supplement to the prospectus included in the registration statement filed with the SEC by Diageo, Diageo Capital plc and Diageo Investment Corporation. The prospectus in that registration statement (which is different from the Prospectus) and the prospectus supplement and other documents Diageo has filed with the SEC contains information about Diageo and the offering of the Notes. You may get these documents for free by visiting EDGAR on the SEC web site at www.sec.gov.
