Dictador Colombian Ortodoxy Gin
Colombian Ortodoxy gin is based on the formula of Dario Parra, former president of Dictador and lover of gin. After his many extended visits to the UK and of course, enjoying what was for him Godâs drink, he returned to Colombia determined to create a Colombian gin.Back home he studied several formulas based on his experiences and finally create Ortodoxy gin. For years, the Ortodoxy was produced for his own personal consumption, never dreaming that his invention would one day become an internationally sold gin. The formula of berries, botanicals, peels, roots and spices gives the Ortodoxy gin a unique taste profile.
On the nose it displays a balance of the bitterness of the roots, the freshness of the botanicals, the sweet and sour of berries and peels, and the warmth of the spices. The initial aroma is of the juniper and the angelica combined with mint, lemon and pepper. The secondary aromas of cinnamon, blueberry and ginger merge to create a classic dry gin.
In the mouth, the gin is flavourful, smooth, yet sweet and sour with the astringency of classic gin. At 43 per cent alcohol, this gin mixes well with a wide range of tonics. Enjoy with a slice of lemon and you will realise why Ortodoxy is a classic.
