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.
Light amber in color, the base spirit of Dictador "Treasure" Colombian Barrel Aged Gin is a neutral spirit distilled up to five times from sugar cane which is infused with various botanicals including unique Colombian fruit Limon Mandarino which blends the exotic sweet taste of the tangerine and the acidity of the lemon to give fantastic balance. It is then aged for 35 weeks in their Dictador rum barrels. The result is a complex and flavorful gin offering notes of mint, spearmint, pepper and tangerine-lemon. Enjoyed it on the rocks.
