Don Papa Rum’s recent cocktail competition births four concoctions you can try mixing yourself
After holding cocktail competitions in the UK, Netherlands and Denmark, Don Papa Rum recently brought the cocktail competition to the Philippine shores in recognition of the growing cocktail scene in the country.
From a pool of 50, 13 bartenders were chosen to showcase their unique cocktail creations made with the equally distinctive blend of Don Papa Rum.
Four bartenders (Kathrin Osmillo of Oto, John Robert Lorenzo of Samba at Shangri-La at the Fort, Abigael Quilal-lan of ABV, and Maxniel Seruelo of Prisma Boracay) came out on top, impressing judges not only with their creations’ flavors, but with the stories behind the concoctions.
The winners of the cocktail competition will go on an all-expense-paid trip to Negros Island. Part of this prize is a visit to Don Papa Rum’s distillery, one of the Philippines’ biggest producing sugar mills, and a luxury island experience in Punta Bulata resort.
Since its launch in 2012, the homegrown brand has become one of the hottest premium brands in Europe – and has expanded its distribution to 21 countries across Europe, Asia Pacific, North America, and South Africa.
