- The brand
In 1751, Severo Arango y Ferro arrived in Cartagena de Indias, a port city in Colombia, with the aim of developing trade there. A powerful man, he was rapidly given the name the “Dictador”. In 1913, Don Angel Nùnèz decided to set up his business there and founded his distillery, Destileria Colombiana. He went on to produce and distribute his wines and spirits locally for 40 years. After his death, his family picked up where he left off. At the dawn of the 21st century, the distillery gained access to the Caribbean zone when it was merged with a larger group; this generated new markets for its rums.
