product Details

Dictador Best of 1993 ex-Whisky Cask 25 Year Old 75cl / Prav Saraff

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.

A 1993 single vintage cask of rum from Destileria Colombiana. This was selected excluisvely for Prav Saraff, and was matured in an ex-whisky barrel.

Dictador rum is named after Severo Arango y Ferro, nicknamed "El Dictador," who oversaw trade between Spain and its colonies in the 18th century. The company was founded by one of his descendants.
