DESTILERÍA COLOMBIANA

Distillery
Founded in 1913
The Dictador brand is produced at Destilería Colombiana, in Cartagena, Colombia; a distillery that has been in production for over a hundred years.

The production process indicates they use a syrup produced by boiling off the water from freshly pressed sugarcane juice, rather than molasses.

This syrup is fermented for 48-60 hours and then filtered readily for distillation. Distillation is carried using both copper alembic (pot still) and continuous column methods.

The main USP for the brand is that the rum is aged using a variation on a solera system.

So, whilst the main expressions are listed as ‘Aged 12 Years’ and ‘Aged 20 Years’, in reality, these are average age statements.

The indication is that the cask management is skillfully worked to impart the different nuances in the flavor profile.

Dictador is one of the World’s most awarded Rums.

Soon after founder Severo Arango y Ferro arrived to Cartagena, his power earned him the nickname of Dictador. After falling in love with Rum, he became the most important trader of the Caribbean elixir for the entire Cartagena area.
