The events are designed to familiarise consumers with Don Papa’s new cocktail offering, and as such attendees will be served cocktails and canapés inspired by the Philippine rum.

The series is set to launch with a press event at Ropewalk in London on 6 April, which will be hosted by global brand ambassador Matthias Cadeac D’arbaud. An emerging Colombian singer/songwriter will also deliver a performance on the night.
