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:

 1. It received notification on 8 March 2013 that Larry Schwartz, a person
    discharging managerial responsibilities ("PDMR"), exercised options on 7
    March 2013 over American Depository Shares in the Company ("ADS")* granted
    under the Company's Senior Executive Share Option Plan as set out below:
   
No. of ADSs          Date of grant        Price per ADS     
                                                            
16,872               19 September 2006    $70.38            

Mr Schwartz subsequently sold 16,534 ADSs on 7 March 2013 at a price per ADS of
$120.19. As a result of the above transactions, Mr Schwartz's interests in the
Company's ADSs (excluding options, awards under the Company's LTIPs and
interests as a potential beneficiary of the Company's Employee Benefit Trusts)
have increased to 20,816.

 2. John Kennedy, a PDMR, acquired an interest in 10,070 ADSs, in the form of
    awards under the Company's Performance Share Plan (the "PSP") on 7 March
    2013. This corrects the number of 7,997 ADSs awarded, which was announced
    yesterday.
