About Papa

Once enrolled, Papa provides the technology for both groups to manage their experience, including a member app that enables seniors and their caregivers to request visits; and an app for Papa Pals to track and manage visits. Additionally, the logistics platform includes an administrative tool for managing its members, onboarding new Papa Pals, and managing billing.

News provided by Share this article Share this article The Ultra-Premium Rum Brand Expands its National Portfolio with a Rum Inspired by the Bourbon Trail KEY WEST, Fla., May 10, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Papa's Pilar Rum , the ultra-premium rum brand inspired by legendary novelist Ernest Hemingway, announces that it has added a Rye-Finished Rum to its national portfolio, marking this as the fourth expression added to the flagship fleet. The Ultra-Premium Rum Brand Expands its National Portfolio with a Rum Inspired by the Bourbon Trail Papa's Pilar Rye-Finished Rum marries Master Distiller Ron Call's passion for innovative rum with his roots in the whiskey industry. As a 7th generation master distiller, Ron, alongside members of his family, has created several whiskey brands along the legendary bourbon trail. With 49 years of Master Distilling behind him, the majority of which includes whiskey, this release allows Ron to return to his roots while producing a perfectly crafted premium spirit that both rum and whiskey aficionados will enjoy. "I was eager to infuse the practices and nuances I garnered from my work in the whiskey industry into a finished rum that I'm proud to put my name on," said Ron Call. "Our new Rye-Finished Rum is an ode to Papa Hemingway who has inspired our dedication to innovation with his desire to constantly explore uncharted territories. We are looking forward to getting this into the hands of our fans as they embark on their own adventures." Now officially available for purchase, Papa's Pilar Rye-Finished Rum is made using the brand's Dark Rum, which is solera blended with rums sourced from Barbados, Dominican Republic, Panama, Venezuela and Florida. The rum is further finished in once-used straight rye whiskey barrels made from heavily charred white oak, a rare process that resulted in a complexity and depth not often seen in the premium rum category. Papa's Pilar Rye-Finished Rum offers an oak-forward taste with subtle hints of coffee, baking spices and dark chocolate. Bottled at 43% alcohol by volume, the rum has a nose of oak, burnt sugar, dates and baking spices, with a long and warm lingering finish of cacao and caramel. While Papa's Pilar is a rum meant for sipping, the brand recommends enjoying this spirit however you like. Kyle Cooper who leads Papa's Pilar's bar program, has developed the '62nd Street Manhattan' cocktail specially for this release -- a rum spin on the classic cocktail, the recipe name pays homage to Hemingway's home during his time spent in New York City. 6nd Street Manhattan 0.5 ounce sweet vermouth Dash of Angostura bitters Directions: Stir with ice to chill and dilute. Serve up or on the rocks, and garnish with dirty cherries or an orange peel. Papa's Pilar Rye-Finished Rum (SRP: $49.99) is now available in select retailers nationwide, as well as on Papa's Pilar's website at .
