Don Papa Sevillana Cask Finish rum launches

Philippine rum Don Papa has expanded its portfolio with the launch of a new expression made with Seville oranges.

Don Papa Sevillana Cask Finish is a limited edition expression

Don Papa Sevillana Cask Finish is a limited edition expression that is made in small batches on the island of Negros in the Philippines.

Non-chill-filtered and bottled at 40% ABV, the Sevillana cask is made from a blend of rums aged between four and 12 years, distilled from 100% Negros sugarcane, and aged in American oak ex-Bourbon barrels.

Its maturation period also includes three years in two different types of Spanish casks: oloroso Sherry and Andalusian Vino de Naranja (orange wine) casks.

The creation of the Sevillana blend was inspired by the 18th-century Manila-Acapulco Galleon trade, which linked Spain to the Philippines via Mexico.

The expression will be available from 15 October in Harvey Nichols stores and online for RRP £70 (US$86) per 700ml bottle.

Matthias Cadeac D’Arbaud, Don Papa global brand ambassador, said: “Inspired by the oranges of Seville, our latest offering is a unique and wonderful blend of Sherry, oranges and Filipino rum.

“Bursting with flavours of fragrant citrus, salted caramel and a subtle hint of oak and with a smooth, long and tangy finish, this premium unfiltered rum is best enjoyed neat as a smooth and refreshing late summer and autumnal sipper.”
