Ron Abuelo’s Hacienda San Isidro
PESÉ, PANAMA – The Dirty Mojito – made with Abuelo brand 7-year rum – is our new favorite summer drink. The best way to experience it is at an outdoor cafe on a mild evening in the Casco Viejo section of Panama City. That’s exactly how we wrapped up our shoot last March for JWM, the in-room magazine of JW Marriott hotels. The story (see Rum City) focused on Abuelo rum, so we had the opportunity to spend a day shooting at Hacienda San Isidro, four hours outside of Panama City, where its sugar cane is harvested, distilled, and aged. To truly drink like a local in Panama, order the Abuelo 12-year straight up or over ice.
