OF EVERYWHERE HE TRAVELED IN THIS WORLD, ERNEST HEMINGWAY CHOSE KEY WEST TO CALL HOME. AND IT’S THERE THAT WE CHOSE TO INNOVATE THE RUM NAMED IN HIS HONOR, PAPA’S PILAR.
Hemingway’s immense love for Key West was unparalleled. It was a gateway to adventure at sea, and home to soul, pen, and Papa’s beloved boat, the Pilar. His mark on the island community still runs deep and a trip to Key West is not complete without a visit to the Hemingway House, Sloppy Joe's, and the Papa’s Pilar Distillery.
