Don Papa was born on the island of Negros or 'Sugarlandia' as it is called there. This is where the best sugar canes of the archipelago grow. Don Papa uses a very sugar-rich molasses, fermented for 2 days and then distilled in column stills. The rum is then matured at the foot of the Kanlaon volcano in Bourbon casks.

The brand name is originated from Dionisio Magbuelas, nicknamed Papa Isio, foreman in a sugar plantation but also shaman and healer.  In 1896, he became a key player in the struggle for the independence of his country against Spain. In 1898, the United States bought the archipelago from Spain and Papa Isio continued the fight until his imprisonment in 1908. He died in jail three years later and his country became independent in 1946.
