The Rum maker's Gin.

In 1913, Don Julio Arango y Parra founded Destilería Colombiana in Cartegeña, Colombia. For most of their history they have distilled high quality Rum for other brands and blends. But in 2009, investors from nearby Barranquilla, Colombia, joined forces with Don Julio’s grandson Herńan to help launch a private label brand — Dictador Rum. Huge success followed — along with several prestigious awards — and they now have eight Rums, two Gins, three custom-wrapped cigars, and a private brand of coffee. It’s as if they were trying to bundle all the best vices in the highest quality under one roof.

Dictador Treasure Colombian Aged Gin has all the information you need on the label. The Dictador distillery has been producing very high quality Rums for more than a century, so their Gins are sugarcane-based and distilled five times. It is aged for 35 months in ex-Rum casks — which gives it a light amber color and surprising smoked-toffee note in the fore-palate. And they named it “Treasure”… well, because it tastes that good. They keep the botanical mix a secret, but juniper, citrus zest, and a floral are there, plus a strong influence from their signature ingredientLimon Mandarino, which is a hybrid of mandarin orange and lemon.

SmartAss Corner: 
When it comes to liquor, Columbia operates as 32 different markets and Dictador is only available in two of them. That’s because local governments are allowed to control access and tax liquor for revenue, so politicians have a strong incentive to only allow certain “politically friendly” spirits to be sold in their regions.

Few Gin Distillers Make Their Own Alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral spirit: A commodity that in distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavour-infusing process that makes each Gin different.

Citrus bomb
Haven’t opened it yet.
The lemon zest and tangerine are striking, as are the botanicals and juniper berries. Living in Schiedam, Netherlands it’s always nice to surprise neighbors with this very different gin. Nevertheless not my own favorite, but that’s personal. It’s a nice gin with a reasonable aftertaste.
The citrus forward and smoothness of the aging makes this a perfect as straight, no chaser gin.
Unique citrusy flavored gin, smooth and pleasant for a little added twist to classic gin drinks. Botanicals are not overpowering in this one.
