Juan Zambrano says of his drink, “Papelon with lemon, or Aguapanela is a common drink in the Caribbean and in Venezuela. This was what I used to drink among my friends in La Guaira, the place where I grew up. Venezuela’s toughest gift was to force many of my childhood friends to leave the country searching for a better future, just like the Bacardí family when the Cuban Revolution forced them to leave their country with nothing.
“Pana Pana is an homage to my friends, to our culture and to our South American traditions.”
