2 Masters is the brainchild of Hernan Parra, master distiller at Columbia-based Dictador rum. His idea was both novel and outrageous. Find 6 master distillers or winemakers around the world - star producers of Scotch, Cognac, Armagnac, Champagne, Sauternes and Bordeaux - send them barrels of 37-45 year old aged rum and give them just 1 instruction: finish the rum in any barrel or vessel of their choosing, putting their stamp on a rum only 2 masters could produce.
