BIOGRAPHIES DON’T WRITE THEMSELVES

A RUM AS BOLD, YET NUANCED AS PAPA HEMINGWAY HIMSELF, PAPA’S PILAR IS BORN OF A COMPLEX CREATIVE PROCESS INSPIRED BY HIS ARTISTIC EXPRESSION.

APTLY NAMED AFTER PAPA AND HIS BOAT, THE PILAR, OUR AWARD-WINNING ULTRA-PREMIUM SPIRIT REFLECTS RUM’S GUTSY ROOTS.

Papa's Rum

Born of the finest rums, each is hand-selected from the Caribbean and Central, South, and North America. They are then married together in our proprietary solera blending process. Papa’s Pilar represents the original spirit of rum. Bold and well-traveled — just like Papa.

White spirits drinkers will be introduced to something they had no idea that rum was capable of.

It’s not often we develop an affinity for a spirit like we maintain for whiskey, but the Dark stole our hearts.

- WISKY JULIET

On both the nose and palate, it offers a sensory overload of cinnamon, clove, baking spices, honey, cocoa, and mocha. It is rum as it should be, a spirit that makes you stop and think.

- MARK SPIVAK

And just a quarter of the way through (the year), the dark rum is an early contender for Rum of the Year. And certainly worthy of the Hemingway name.
