Introducing Ernest, our inaugural exclusive edition rum, crafted to commemorate a remarkable 10-year journey of excellence. Inspired by the spirit of adventure and literary brilliance of Ernest Hemingway, this exceptional rum pays homage to Papa's Pilar and represents the culmination of our dedication to creating the finest spirits. Join us in celebrating this momentous occasion and embark on a captivating voyage of taste, heritage, and unparalleled craftsmanship.
Ernest is a harmonious blend of hand-selected rums, carefully curated by our 7th Generation Master Distiller, Ron Call. With meticulous precision, he has artfully combined the finest rums sourced from South and Central America to create a truly exquisite blend.
To achieve its remarkable depth and complexity, Ernest undergoes a unique double-finishing process. After initial aging, the rum is placed in new, 36-month air-dried staves in heavy toasted American white oak barrels, infusing it with rich and robust flavors. It is then double-finished in both Cognac casks and Armagnac casks, adding further layers of complexity and enhancing its overall character. The result is a symphony of flavors that gracefully dance on the palate, inviting you to savor each sip.
Ernest is an XO rum, aged up to 23 years, and boasts a robust proof of 100 (50% ABV). It embodies the perfect balance of craftsmanship and expertise, delivering an unparalleled drinking experience.
Join us in raising a glass to Ernest, a rum that captures the spirit of adventure, literary brilliance, and the exceptional craftsmanship that defines Papa's Pilar. Celebrate Hemingway's 124th birthday and indulge in the remarkable flavors that this limited-edition rum has to offer. Cheers to the journey, the milestones, and the legacy of Ernest Hemingway.
