Don Papa Port Cask Rum 700ml
The Don Papa's Port Cask commemorates the quincentenary of the earth's first circumnavigation, an epic voyage ultimately leading to the landing by the Spanish in the Philippines. Five hundred years ago, Portuguese explorer, Ferdinand Magellan, was commissioned by King Charles I of Spain to embark on an expedition in search of the Spice Islands. It was an odyssey over the edge of the world that would forever change the course of maritime navigation and history.
