product Details

Dictador 1976 2 Masters / Laballe

The Destilería Colombiana was established in 1913 by Don Julio Arango y Parra and today it is still run by members of his family. The distillery’s flagship brand, Dictador, is named after Severo Arango y Ferro, nicknamed "El Dictador," for the heavy hand with which oversaw trade between Spain and its colonies in the 18th century. Don Julio was one of his descendants. The distillery operates both copper pot stills as well as a stainless steel six-column continuous still, and uses a wash made from sugarcane “honey.” This is the product of the first stage in molasses production, which produces a syrup by boiling off the water from freshly pressed cane juice. This provides a lighter distillate than traditional molasses.

The 2 Masters series is a range of rums that pairs the wisdom of Dictador master blender, Hernan Parra, with another from the world of wine and spirits.

This example was co-created with Cyril Laudet, cellar master at Laballe.
