José Fernández Pérez, also known as Don Pancho, has dedicated his life to learning, researching and making the rum that today bears his name.
After finding love in Panama, he spent many years making rum for his clients until, one day, he felt the call of his origins. He embarked on an adventure and developed his own exclusive selection of rums: Don Pancho Orígenes.
On 16 October, we had the pleasure of delving into the origins of rum with this aforementioned rum master and enjoying a tasting through the living history of Don Pancho’s selection at the Hotel Recoletos in Madrid.
At 83 years old, he continues to spread that passion and spirit for rum, which we couldn’t help but feel when we listened to him.
We hope to see him again very soon to offer us more of his knowledge.
