One drop at-a-time; one of the World’s most awarded Rums.
For more than 40 years, Dictador has been creating ultra-premium, aged Rum in the heart of Cartagena, Columbia, although the history of the Dictador brand goes back to 1751 when Severo Arango y Ferro arrived to Cartagena, where he became the most important trader of different exotic and high quality Rums for the Cartagena area – earning him the nickname Dictador. Today, the distillery is in the experienced hands of third generation Rum producer and master blender Hernan Parra who did an amazing job perfecting the manufacturing process yet preserving family recipes and techniques.
The distillery's location in Columbia provides ideal conditions for producing award-winning Rum. In fact, Dictador has the world’s largest stock assets of aged Rum, up to 45 years old, which means regularly releasing exceptional and rare drams comes easy (Dictador distributes in more than 80 countries!) and so does creating an entirely new luxury category for Fine Rums.
Dictador 20 Year Old Solera System Rum is one of the World's most awarded Rums. It's also the winner of the Flaviar Community Award 2017 - Flaviaristas know a good Rum when they see it.
It is made from the fermentation of virgin sugar cane honey and distilled partly in copper alembic and partly in steel continuous column. It's aged in second-fill oak barrels using the solera method. Over a period of 28 days it is brought down to bottling strength by demineralised water. Drop-by-drop as they would say.
Due to its geographical location, Colombia is one of the three largest sugar cane producers in the world (It was also one of the first sugar cane producers!). This means high quality and large harvests.
