Don Papa Rum

Don Papa Rum or the The Don, was inspired by the story of one of the unsung heroes of the Philippine revolution: Dionisio Magbuelas, better known locally as "Papa" Isio.

Initially a foreman at a sugar plantation, Papa Isio - healer, shaman, seer, rebel, and leader of a group of babaylanes - played a key role during the late 19th-century Philippine Revolution.

Papa Isio's spirit and leadership played a critical part in freeing Negros from Spanish rule, ultimately leading to independence for his beloved country.
