Rum was once a noble spirit. It was served aboard warships, rationed to visionary explorers, and used to sustain the Founding Fathers as they plotted revolution. It was a drink consumed by men who understood that you only get one shot at life.
Ernest Hemingway, or “Papa” as he was known, was this type of man – an adventurer who lived life to the fullest. He was an author, a free thinker, a sportsman, and a bon vivant. But he was never a spectator. Pilar was the boat that allowed this American literary giant to reach beyond the shoreline and feast on life.
Inspired by his appetite for adventure, we’ve proudly created a super-premium rum — Papa’s Pilar. Papa’s Pilar Dark and Blonde rums have been crafted to reflect Hemingway’s passions on land and at sea.
Bold, well-traveled, and uniquely American, Papa’s Pilar is hell-bent on returning rum to its gutsy roots.
Live courageously. Drink Responsibly.
