In 1751 Severo Arango y Ferro arrived in Cartagena de Indias to oversee commerce between the American Spanish colonies and Spain. His strength and power earned him the nickname "Dictador" and under his leadership, the city became the most important port for the Spanish Armada. Dictador was partial to the wide variety of Caribbean rums which were traded through the port and over time became a noted trader and producer of exotic, high quality rums. In 1913, almost one hundred eighty years after Dictador arrived in Cartagena de Indias, one of his descendents established Destileria Colombiana. Today, the distillery honors their legacy with their line of Dictador Rum and Colombian Gin - a combination of high quality aged spirits, innovative European design, and state of the art Japanese bottles.
Crafted based on the formula of the former president of the company Dario Parra, Dictador "Ortodoxy" Colombian Barrel Aged Gin opens with aromas of juniper, angelica, mint, lemon and pepper, followed by subtle notes of cinnamon, blueberry and ginger. The palate displays perfect balance between the bitterness of the roots, the freshness of the botanicals, the sweet and sour of berries and peels, and the warmth of the spices. At 43% alcohol, this gin mixes well with a wide range of classic and modern cocktails.
