Papa's Pilar

Papa's Pilar

In June 2015, Papa’s Pilar announced a partnership that would make Papa Hemingway proud. In a grassroots effort to make “Papa” proud, the award-winning artisan-crafted rum, and The Ocean Foundation partnered in their efforts to protect and restore oceans and coastal environments around the world. A partnership with The Ocean Foundation is a perfect fit for Papa’s Pilar, given its dedication to reversing the trend of destruction of ocean environments, and Hemingway’s commitment to conservation.

 Papa’s Pilar was crafted for water enthusiasts who live by the same creed as Hemingway, and is meant to rekindle a sense of adventure in us all.  “Papa” lived an epic life full of perpetual motion, and Papa’s Pilar was crafted to accompany rum enthusiasts as they sink their teeth into life.  Named for his muse and one true constant, Pilar is the vessel that allowed America’s literary giant to reach beyond the shoreline, feast on life and remind us to never be a spectator.

“We’re proud to help raise awareness and funds for the important conservation work of The Ocean Foundation and we couldn’t be more thrilled that the Hemingway family is also supporting this project.”  -Lindsey Kops, National Brand Director
