Ron Abuelo (literally Grandfather''s rum in Spanish) is distilled from fermented molasses at the Varela Hermanos distillery in Panama. Matured in American white oak ex-bourbon barrels, it''s a blend of selected aged rums married to perfection by the Master Blender. Ron Abuelo Añejo is the distillery''s speciality, it''s officially classified as Reserva Especial. Varela Hermanos is a major presence in the Panamanian town of Pesé and actively promotes socially responsible and environmentally sustainable practices. These include utilising cleaner alternative fuels, using recycled glass in their bottles and manually harvesting the sugar cane, which provides much needed employment in the rural area of Pesé.
