He lives in Washington, DC, with his wife and three daughters.

Papa’s Pilar Rum
(For Which Philip Is A Brand Ambassador)


From the official website

Inspired by Ernest Hemingway’s spirit of adventure, Papa’s Pilar is an artisan-crafted spirit sourced from hand-selected rums spanning the Caribbean, Central America and the U.S. then solera blended to perfection on American soil.

Rum was once a noble spirit. It was served aboard warships, rationed to visionary explorers, and used to sustain the Founding Fathers as they plotted revolution. It was a drink consumed by men who understood that you only get one shot at life.

Ernest Hemingway, or “Papa” as he was known, was this type of man – an adventurer who lived life to the fullest. He was an author, a free thinker, a sportsman, and a bon vivant. But he was never a spectator. Pilar was the boat that allowed this American literary giant to reach beyond the shoreline and feast on life.

Inspired by his appetite for adventure, we’ve proudly created a super-premium rum — Papa’s Pilar. Papa’s Pilar Dark and Blonde rums have been crafted to reflect Hemingway’s passions on land and at sea. Bold, well-traveled, and uniquely American, Papa’s Pilar is hell-bent on returning rum to its gutsy roots. Live courageously. Drink Responsibly
