Tequila is like a feisty lover: if you want to leave, it will give you…
Rum isn’t just for sailors and pirates, but you’ll definitely have a great time sipping on it and pretending to be one.
How it is made: Don Papa is created on the fertile foothills of the active volcano Mt. Kanlaon, where the finest sugar cane is milled to produce sweet, rich molasses. The rum is charcoal filtered to remove any tannins and impurities before being blended to perfection. The combination of the volcanic soil, the quality of the sugar cane, the ageing in oak and the blender’s art come together beautifully to give Don Papa rum its signature rich, smooth taste.
Flavours: It is light and fruity on the nose, smooth and delicate in the mouth with a long-textured finish, and offers flavours of vanilla, honey, and candied fruits.
Cool Fact: Don Papa is a tribute to Papa Isio, the charismatic Philippines’ leader who, in the 1890s, helped drive the Spanish from the Negros and win independence for the island.
