Dictador produces Colombian aged rum with a history stretching back to 1913. Dictador is run by the Parra family, the third generation of master blenders of Dictador who closely guard the recipe.
The rum is named after Severo Arango y Ferro, nicknamed "El Dictador", who in the 1700s oversaw trade between Spain and the colonies and went on to become a key supplier of exotic sugarcane spirits, which at the time were the currency of the region. Dictador is known for its distinctive smooth taste and notes of caramel, cocoa, roasted honey and coffee.
Hernan Parra, Dictador Master Blender, has won many awards for Dictador rums in international competitions including gold medals at the World Spirit Awards, San Francisco World Spirit Competition, Miami Rum Festival, Tokyo Whisky and Spirits Competition.
