Dictador Premium Colombian Aged Gin - Ortodoxy

Dictador Premium Colombian Aged Gin - Ortodoxy

70cl | 43% ABV | Columbia

Dictador is a premium gin brand coming in hot all the way from the staggeringly exotic Columbia. Given that this is the land of rum, their gin range has spent a fair amount of time lounging around in wood, which makes it all the more exquisite…

Dictador Colombian Ortodoxy Gin is a really well executed, light, crisp gin with delicate citrus peels adding real levity. This is close to perfection in a Martini with a light spritz of lemon peel.

Key Flavours

"The initial aroma is of juniper and angelica combined with mint, lemon and pepper just behind. It's a classic gin, with slight nods to the distillery's predominant rum focus (underlying sweetness, slight kiss of wood)."

About this product

Dictador Colombian Ortodoxy Gin follows a recipe created by the company’s former president, Dario Parra, and has a fairly traditional botanical list, albeit one with a cooling hit of mint. After distillation, the gin is aged in ex-rum barrels.

Dictador are a rum company through and through, and while this foray into gin may have come following some international inspiration, the use of local citrus and time in barrel help bring the team's passion into this category.

The Dictador brand has been operating in Colombia for over 100 years, bringing spirits, coffee and cigars to the world. Production is at the heart of what they do, with their Destilleria Comlombiana in Catagena a rum hub.
