ABOUT RON ABUELO
When it comes to the fine, aged rums of Ron Abuelo, the quest for perfection in spirits reaches a new high. There is little resemblance to lesser brands that created a category once better known for umbrella drinks and coconut-shaped glasses.
These remarkable rums are created at the hands of the expert distillers at Varela Hermanos, a family-owned company, which dates back to 1908, when Don José Varela established in the town of Pesé the first sugar mill in the recently-formed Republic of Panama. To this day, Varela Hermanos produces high-quality spirits with the support of its local community.
