7 ans - Rhum Don Papa
A luscious spirit with great aromatic richness, carried by notes of apricot, candied fruit cake, candied orange peel... Round, suave, almost syrupy palate, a rum that is soft and sweet, with vanilla and a hint of cinnamon aromas. It feels like a pastry and we love that about it.

Rum produced from sugar cane grown on the island of Negros, it is a molasses rum (when heating the sugar cane, we have on the one hand the sugar and on the other hand molasses, this residue from the production of cane sugar, a dark liquid, concentrated in sugars and aromas). The molasses is fermented before being distilled in a column still (or Coffey still). After distillation, a few grams of sugars are added to the rum, which is aged for seven years in American oak barrels, ex-Bourbon barrels and ex-Rioja barrels. Aging in a tropical, hot and humid environment, which favors the evaporation or part des anges, at the foot of the Kanlaon volcano. Bottle sold with its limited-edition canister in collaboration with the Talarak Foundation, which protects the fauna and flora on the Philippines islands.
Don Papa is a young Maison already emblematic among rum companies, which invites us to discover a new terroir, that of Negros Island in the Philippines, more commonly known as Sugarlandia. The name of Don Papa is a tribute to Dionisio Magbuelas, also nicknamed Papa Isio, foreman in a sugar plantation, shaman and healer, who became a revolutionary leader in the 19th century, and who led the country to its independence. It is his portrait that appears on each of the bottles, as a nod to the innovative and rebellious spirit of the brand.
