Premium Colombian Aged Gin Treasure

is based on a unique Colombian fruit Limon Mandarino (Tangerine-Lemon) which blends the exotic sweet taste of the tangerine and the acidity of the lemon to give fantastic balance. The base spirit for the Colombian Gin is made from a neutral spirit distilled up to five times from sugar cane. The berries, botanicals, spices and citrus peels when combined with the ageing process merge to create our unique Gin. Colombian Treasure Gin. To give an extraordinary smoothness to the Colombian Treasure Gin we place the spirit in oak barrels previously used to age our Dictador rums for 35 weeks. The combination of the balance of the exotic citrus peel and the time spent in barrels gives our ginthe freshness and smoothness necessary to be able to savour it with just a few ice cubes.

In the glass it has a slight amber colour reflective of the time spent in a barrel. Its clarity and brightness boasts of a truly revolutionary product.

The initial aroma is of tangerine enhanced with lemon notes. The secondary aroma is of the botanicals that provide the freshness and balance. Mint, spearmint and pepper and a bit of sweetness from the wood and berries – this an intimate fusion of a marvelous new generation of gin for both beginners and connoisseurs.

The pleasant notes and roundness from the tangerine, lemon, mint and pepper, with the traditional flavours of gin enhanced by the time spent in oak barrels results in a truly unique gin. Colombian Treasure Gin. Enjoyed on the rocks. Garnished with a twist of tangerine peel.

About us

Company details

History and Myth
In the late 18th century, Severo Arango y Ferro arrived in Cartagena de Indias in Nueva Granada (present-day Colombia), he had plans to improve tax collection for Spain in the American Spanish colonies. His strong and powerful nature was quickly recognised and he was soon dubbed ‘DICTADOR’.

Then came the moment when he fell in love at first sight (and taste): he discovered rum. His devotion and affection for the tropical elixir drove him to become a key trader of exotic sugar cane spirits, which at the time were considered a currency in the region.

In 1913, almost 180 years after DICTADOR’s myth was conceived, one of his descendants established Destilería Colombiana. Don Julio Arango y Parra spent years researching DICTADOR’s myth as well as the intricacies of rum production in order to become the finest Colombian rum producer in the Caribbean Zone, while dedicating his life to honouring his forefather’s legacy.

Going Global
Determined to showcase DICTADOR’s success and unique flavour profile on a global scale, the third generation of the family sought to expand and share their beautiful liquid around the globe. In 2009, savvy international investors came on board and helped to make DICTADOR one of the most-loved and awarded Colombian rums in the world.

Dictador: The Concept
DICTADOR is extraordinary, international and award winning. Age-old Colombian traditions are combined with innovative European and Japanese designs to create perfect rum that is rich in both flavour and style.

Geographical Advantage
Based in Cartagena, Colombia - DICTADOR has the privilege of being in the northern region of South America with over 800 miles of coast on the sparkling Caribbean sea. Our location gives us that magical balance of weather and land to be able to produce our range of exceptional rums.

The Setting
Cartagena is a UNESCO World Heritage Site deeply steeped in romance with beautiful colonial era antiquity – this city is as captivating as our rum itself. Whether strolling down the cobbled alleys or sipping DICTADOR on the beach, you’ll find that the city’s historic and one-of-a-kind setting provides the perfect backdrop for our production.

Due to its geographical position, Colombia is one of the three largest sugar cane producers, assuring us both high quality and high quantity harvests. Cartagena and its countryside are famous for being the first areas for sugar cane production in South America.
