About the producer

Origenes by Don Pancho

Born in Cuba more than 76 years ago, Francisco Jose Fernandez Perez “Don Pancho” has used more than 50 years dedicated to learn, research, develop and make rum.

Don Pancho learned the tradition of Cuban style rum from his Mentor, Ramon Fernandez Corrales, and with a graduating as a biochemist and microbiologist, as the title “Master blender didn’t exist at that time, he was the head of research and development for the Cuban brands; his input was fundamental during the transformation and upgrading of the Cuban rum Industry in 70’s.

When Don Pancho moved to Panama, he both found love and the perfect condition to grew the sugarcane like in his homeland. In the start, he produced small batches of aguardiente that later became the Carta Blanca and eventually his aged reserves. For years, Don Pancho collaborated with renowned industries in the development of new brands of rums, and in the reformulations of some classic ones without betraying the principles learned years ago.

After fifty years of making rums for his customers, he saw how diverse the market had become, and he felt the call of Origins – with a life devoted to his rums and as one of the depositaries of the Cuban tradition of rum making, respecting every aspect of it, from his distillery in Las Cabras de Pese and in partnership with his longtime friend and business associate, Carlos E Esquivel, he envisioned and developed his true and only signature line rums: Don Pancho Origenes.
