Don Jose Varelo Blanco founded the Republic of Panama’s first sugar mill in 1908. Nearly three decades later his three sons persuaded him to set up a distillery and in in 1936, Hermanos Veralo was built. Better known as Distilleria Don Jose, today this is run by the third generation who grow their own yeast cultures in the distillery’s laboratory and are best known for their Ron Abuelo.
