Inspired by the seaward adventures of Ernest Hemingway, Papa’s Pilar Blonde is the first ever “Blonde” Rum, similar in color to the light rums Papa Hemingway enjoyed in Key West and Cuba during the 30’s. Papa’s Pilar takes rum back to its roots - when color was celebrated and fine flavors revered. It celebrates an
exceptionally smooth tasting experience consisting of citrus notes, hints of almond and oak, and a creamy mouth. This uniquely crafted spirit is sourced from hand-selected rums spanning the Caribbean, U.S. and Central America, aged 3-7 years, and solera blended by our master blending team in Bourbon barrels and
Spanish Sherry casks. Papa’s Pilar Blonde is distinguished and worldly, representing the original spirit of rum.
|Rum was once a noble spirit. It was served aboard warships, rationed to visionary explorers, and used to sustain the Founding Fathers as they plotted revolution. Rum was consumed by men who understood that you only get one shot at life. Standing still, they’d say, was a waste of valuable time.
Ernest Hemingway was this type of man – an adventurer who lived life to the fullest. He indulged us with glimpses of a vibrant life by stitching together distant cultures, passions, and people using the power of the written word.
Inspired by his appetite for adventure, we’ve proudly
created a super-premium rum: Papa’s PilarTM.
It is a spirit born of multiple rums hand-selected from the Caribbean, Central America and Florida. The rums are then brought to the U.S.A. and married together in our unique Solera aging and blending process.
Papa’s PilarTM represents the original spirit of rum.
