RE:      Paragraph 3.1.4 of the Disclosure and Transparency Rules          

The notifications listed below were received under Paragraph 3.1.2 of the
Disclosure and Transparency Rules.

Diageo plc (the "Company") announces that it received notification today that:

 1. Paul Walsh, a director, sold 50,000 ordinary shares of 28 101/108 pence
    each in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") on 7 March 2013 at a price per
    share of £20.11.
   
As a result of the above transaction, the interests of Mr Walsh in the
Company's Ordinary Shares (excluding options, awards under the Company's LTIPs
and interests as a potential beneficiary of the Company's Employee Benefit
Trusts) have decreased to 604,614.

 2. John Kennedy, a Person Discharging Managerial Responsibilities, acquired,
    on 7 March 2013, an interest of 7,997 American Depositary Shares ("ADS")*
    in the form of awards under the Company's Performance Share Plan (the
    "PSP"), approved by shareholders on 15 October 2008.
   
The performance period commenced on 1 July 2012 and, subject to the rules of
the PSP and the satisfaction of performance conditions, the awards will vest in
March 2016.

As a result of the above transaction, the interests of Mr Kennedy in the
Company's Ordinary Shares and ADSs (excluding options, awards under the
Company's LTIPs and interests as a potential beneficiary of the Company's
Employee Benefit Trusts) are unchanged.

*1 ADS is the equivalent of 4 Ordinary Shares.
