Inspired by the boundless travels of Ernest Hemingway, Papa’s Pilar Dark boasts a bold mouth, long finish and a complex flavor profile, hell-bent on returning rum to its gutsy roots. This artisan-crafted spirit is sourced from hand-selected rum spanning the Caribbean, U.S. and Central America, aged up to 24 years, and solera blended by our master blending team in Bourbon barrels, Port Wine casks, finishing in Spanish Sherry casks. Papa’s Pilar Dark is bold and well-traveled; just like Papa.
|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.
