Rum of the Month: Ron Abuelo (Panama)


Folks, we're really excited to finally have access to this amazing rum from Panama. We're making featuring the whole range as rums of the month for December!

What is Ron Abuelo?

The Range of Ron Abuelo rums produced at the very bridge between North and South America: Panama. This particular brand of rums is produced by Varela Hermanos, makers of numerous Panamanian sugar cane spirits – including a sugar cane-based gin! The Ron Abuelo line of products consists of 3 rums, the Abuelo, the 7 Años, and the newly launched 12 Años.

Varela Hermanos has been involved with sugar cane since 1908, when the company’s founder, Don Jose Varela Blanco, opened a sugar mill in the town of Pese. As I’ve said before, where there is sugar cane, rum will soon follow, and in 1936 Varela Hermanos S.A. began fermenting and distilling pressed cane juice into rum.
