The Source Gin is forged by the four seasons that blow through the Cardrona Valley, Southern Alps, New Zealand. A natural matrix of locally foraged rosehip, together with traditional juniper, coriander seed, angelica root, lemon and orange zest, vapour-distilled into our Single Malt Spirit. We refuse to chill-filter to deliver you full flavour and character. Because THE SOURCE is non-chill-filtered, you will notice the spirit clouds with dilution or when cold - a mark of distinction for this very rare and special drop.

*Multi-Award Winning* 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 God’s 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. COLOUR: In the glass, Ortodoxy gin is full of light and body, proof of its quality and clarity. AROMA:
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. PALATE: 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.
Colombian 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, Dictador's Master Disitller places the spirit in oak barrels previously used to age the Dictador rums for thirty-five weeks. The combination of the balance of the exotic citrus peel and the time spent in barrels gives this gin the freshness and smoothness necessary to be able to savour it with just a few ice cubes. COLOUR: In the glass, Treasure gin is full of light and body, proof of its quality and clarity. AROMA: 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.
