The most famous rum of this area is the Don Papa, which takes its name from the revolutionary Dionisio Magbuelas, known as Pope Isio, employed in one of the Spanish sugar cane plantations in the second half of the nineteenth century. he fought against European domination. Precisely in honor of his great courage, his determination and the long period spent in the fields, the processing of sugar cane was aimed at the production of a typical rum of the Philippines, different from that of Martinique and the Caribbean, but equally good and with a particular flavor.
The rum was imported by the Europeans during the years of discoveries and territorial conquests (between the 15th and the 16th century) and spread widely both in the New World and, subsequently, in the Philippines, with variations not to be underestimated.
This variety in particular is industrial type, distilled from sugar cane molasses and not directly from the plant, which grows in the Philippines thanks to the humid climate and hot and to the volcanic type soil
In addition to the typical fermentation of the molasses and the distillation of the resulting liquid, the Rum Don Papa has the particularity of being aged in wooden barrels for seven years After this rest period you can enjoy a rum with amber color and intense and a fruity aftertaste and vanigliato. The difference from the Antilles rum lies in the sweetness of the Filipino one.

Spanish, Mexican and Asian traditions revisited and fused with Latin accents. A mix of intense and often unusual flavors.

Filipinos eat (at least) five times a day, and at mid-morning and mid-afternoon, they always have a snack. The breakfast (almusál) consists of fried rice with eggs and pan de sal (of sweet sandwiches) eaten hot and strong coffee. For the tanghalían (lunch) or the hapúnan (dinner) are served (all together, at the same time) many different dishes: rice, soups, stews, fried vegetables, condiments.
