Don Papa Rare Cask
Don Papa Rum is a premium small batch rum from Negros (Sugarlandia) in the Philippines. It is distilled by Ginebra San Miguel at their Distileria Bago for the Bleeding Heart Rum Company, established in 2012 by Remy Cointreau executive, Stephen Carroll. It is distilled from local Philippines molasses and aged for a minimum of seven years. The Bago distillery was founded in 1902 by La Tondeña Distillers, and pioneered the use of a molasses wash in the area which previously had preferred distilling from nipa palm. San Miguel acquired the distillery in 2003.
The Don Papa Rare Cask has been aged in American re-charred oak barrels at the foot of Mount Kanalon, and bottled at 101 US Proof.
