SouthTrade International has announced that it will exclusively represent Dictador rums in Australia.

The Colombian brand uses solera system aging, and will have three expressions available in Australia – the Dictador 12 Year Old, Dictador 20 Year Old and Dictador XO.

Established in 1913, the brand is named after an 18th century rum-loving Spanish strongman who was in charge of taxes in the Spanish colony of Nueva Granada (the former name for Colombia), who was nicknamed Dictador, Spanish for Dictator, by the locals.

Marek Szoldrowski, President of Dictador believes that Australia represents a fantastic opportunity for the brand.

"The progressive cocktail culture and desire for premium quality products have led us to believe that Dictador has great potential in Australia and we can build on Dictador’s worldwide success," he says. "Our move to SouthTrade will unlock national opportunities by utilising their networks and experience in the premium spirits category in the on and off trade."
