Launched in 2012 in Manilla and then exported internationally, this rum has been produced on Negros island, the capital of cane sugar in the Philippines. Rich, sweet and fruity, this 7 year-old rum reveals lasting citrus (orange) notes and develops pastry and candied flavours.

The Philippines is a country little known for its production of rum, which began at the end of the 19th century on a small scale. Under American domination, production increased but a few decades later, the Prohibition halted this expansion. Since then, rum experienced renewed popularity and the local brand, Tanduay, is now the second biggest worldwide producer in terms of volume.

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.
