The Story

In 1934, Ernest Hemingway purchased a boat named Pilar from the Wheeler Shipyard for $7,495. Although he ordered the boat from a catalog, extensive customization was requested (including a livewell and a cockpit enclosed with copper screens) in order to make it unique. The boat would eventually become inextricably linked to Hemingway — he used it to catch one of the world’s largest sharks in 1935, and, during World War II, the author went hunting for German U-boats in the Caribbean waters on board the ship (the boat was equipped with a sub-machine gun and hand grenades). As a result of his extensive travels, Hemingway was said to have lived a life of perpetual motion, always acting as a trailblazer and never as a spectator.

Papa’s Pilar Dark Rum is inspired by Hemingway and his thirst for adventure.

Papa's Pilar Dark is an ultra-premium sipping rum, bold and complex much like the man who inspired it - Ernest Hemingway. Made of hand-selected rums solera blended in Bourbon barrels, Port Wine casks and Spanish Sherry casks, this 86 proof award-winning rum has a rich, caramelized orange, maple, vanilla, and toasted almond taste profile and a long velvety finish. 2019 Platinum SIP Award, Double Gold recipient: World Spirits Competition, San Francisco; FiftyBest
