Rum Don Papa or The Don, was inspired by the story of one of the heroes celebrated in the philippine revolution: Dionisio Magbuelas, better known locally as "Papa" Isio. Initially a foreman at a sugar plantation, Papa Isio - healer, shaman, seer, rebel, and the leader of a group of babaylanes - has played a fundamental role during the late 19th century Philippine Revolution. The spirit of Papa Isio and the leadership has played a key role in freeing Negros from Spanish rule, leading ultimately to independence for his beloved country. Rum Don Papa embodies the spirit of independence of the Pope Isio, irreverence and sense of justice. Distilled from some of the best sugar cane in the world, Don Papa is aged 7 years in oak barrels in the foothills of Mount Kanlaon before being blended to perfection. Negros Occidental is and has always been the capital of the sugar of the Philippines. Thanks to the perfect combination of climate, geography and the rich volcanic soil of the island, Negros is ideal for the production of sugar cane.
