Glorious aged Colombian Gin.
 
Every good story starts with a journey and a discovery. Years ago, Dario Parra, former boss of Dictador Rum, visited the United Kingdom and fell in love with their national Spirit, Gin. He decided Colombia should have its own Gin and they should also age it. Now, barrel-aged Gins aren’t a new thing. Distillers stored it in wooden barrels because it was a more cost-effective way of moving it around, maturing the thing in the process. But nowadays, Gins usually aren’t aged, so it’s a wonderful twist to the classic drink. Mr. Parra tinkered around and created Ortodoxy, using barrels that used to hold Rum (working in a Rum distillery helped). He selfishly produced Ortodoxy for his own consumption for years. But luckily, the delightful crystal clear potion was made available to everyone.
 
One of the main deviations for Ortodoxy Gin is that it’s base Spirit is cane, and each botanical is distilled separately before its blended. Then, they mature the concoction in ex-Rum oak barrels for 35 weeks before they filter it. The fantastic formula of berries, peels, spices, roots and botanicals (angelica, cinnamon, juniper and pepper) creates a truly unique flavor profile. It won Gold thrice in Los Angeles (twice in 2016 and once in 2017). Ortodoxy Gin is like a classy gentleman who got a modern makeover and a flashy earring.

Corner
London dry gin is not always from London. Gin does not have the same geographical restrictions as spirits such as cognac, scotch or tequila. Only a tiny handful of London dry gins are actually made in the city.
