Rum Don Papa or The Don, was inspired by the story of one of the celebrated heroes of the Philippine revolution: Dionisio Magbuelas, better known locally as "Papa" Isio.
Initially a foreman on a sugar plantation, Papa Isio - healer, shaman, seer, rebel, and the leader of a group of babaylanes - played a pivotal role during the late 19th-century Philippine Revolution.
The spirit of Pope Isio and his leadership played a vital role in freeing Negros from Spanish rule, ultimately bringing independence for his beloved country.
Rum Don Papa embodies the spirit of independence of Papa Isio, irreverence and a sense of justice.
