The history of the Dictador brand goes back to 1751, when Severo Arango y Ferro arrived to Cartagena, where his power would soon earn him the nickname of Dictador. Falling in love with Rum, Severo Arango y Ferro decided to become the most important trader of different exotic and high quality Rums for the Cartagena area. More than a century later, in 1913, Don Julio Arango y Parra, a descendent of the Dictador established Destileria Colombiana, honoring his forefather with continued excellence in Rum production, as well as Gin.
Dictador 12 Years Rum is made from the fermentation of virgin sugar cane honey distilled partly in copper alembic and partly in steel continuous column, to achieve a medium body rum.
Aged in pre-used oak barrels and finally bottled under the highest quality control to ensure all the secrets are contained in the liquid flavour
