Destileria Colombiana has launched a limited-edition expression of its Dictador rum brand.
Dictador 2 Masters Niepoort is a blend of the Colombian rum’s 1971, 1974, 1978, and 1980 vintages that has been aged for between 12 and 16 months in ex-Port barrels. The expression is available from London-based wine wholesaler Farr Vintners.
The 48% abv expression, which is limited to 620 units, was created in collaboration with Portuguese winemaker Dirk van Niepoort.
“Port is a symbol of rich flavours and intense maturity,” said Dictador’s master blender, Hernan Parra. “Niepoort is the symbol of merging family traditions, high-quality products and ever-evolving creativity … It symbolises what this project stands for; the synergy of two masters.”
Launched in 2015, Dictador’s 2 Masters range showcases a series of the brand’s rums blended with offerings from other spirits and wine producers such as Hungarian wine company Royal Tokaji and French Champagne house Leclerc Briant.
In January, the company launched the first in its Capitulo Uno series of limited-edition aged rum expressions.
