After he met and became friends with Carlos Esquivel, a Panamanian who had deep ties to the local spirits industry. Together, they would create one of Panama’s, and the rum industry’s, most important sources: Proveedora Internacional de LIcores, S.A. (PILSA) Rums a custom distiller whose efforts are behind some of the most important names in the category. The majority of their work is done under contract for rum clientele who are looking for top quality rums to put their own label on.
20 years after arriving in Panama, Don Pancho and Carlos are releasing his first effort bearing his name, Don Pancho Originales rums. Part of the rums are from reserves dating back to when Don Pancho first started making and blending rums in Panama while still living in Cuba.

Don Pancho and Carlos are two of my favorite people in the world of rum. This should be a very interesting and educational show that I hope that you will take the time to watch.
