Our Treasure Gin is based on a unique Colombian fruit Limon Mandarino (Tangerine-Lemon) which blends the exotic sweet taste of the tangerine and the acidity of the lemon to give fantastic balance. The base spirit for the Colombian Gin is made from a neutral spirit distilled up to five times from sugar cane. The berries, botanicals, spices and citrus peels when combined with the ageing process merge to create our unique Gin. Colombian Treasure Gin. To give an extraordinary smoothness to the Colombian Treasure Gin we place the spirit in oak barrels previously used to age our Dictador rums for 35 weeks. The combination of the balance of the exotic citrus peel and the time spent in barrels gives our gin the freshness and smoothness necessary to be able to savour it with just a few ice cubes.
In the glass it has a slight amber colour reflective of the time spent in a barrel. Its clarity and brightness boasts of a truly revolutionary product.
The initial aroma is of tangerine enhanced with lemon notes. The secondary aroma is of the botanicals that provide the freshness and balance. Mint, spearmint and pepper and a bit of sweetness from the wood and berries – this an intimate fusion of a marvelous new generation of gin for both beginners and connoisseurs.

Our Colombian Ortodoxy Gin is based on the formula of Dario Parra, former president of the company, and lover of gin. After his many extended visits to the UK and of course, enjoying what was for him God’s drink, he returned to Colombia determined to create a Colombian Gin.
Back home he studied several formulas, based on his experience and finally create Ortodoxy Gin. For years the Ortodoxy was produced only for his own personal consumption, never dreaming that his invention could one day become an internationally sold gin. The formula of berries, botanicals, peels, roots and spices gives the Ortodoxy gin a unique taste profile.
