Distilleries Bernal raises the challenge of creating a rum that will 
refresh your current Constitution, in a closer to a younger audience, 
on summer nights, in a casual style. We could not however ignore its 
80 years of history and the figure of its founder to which the old rum 
paid homage. On the other hand the Dominican rum transmits in a habitual 
way values ​​and symbols of the time of the great caciques. We wanted to 
look further. To the origin of the Dominican spirit. To the essence and 
personality of the Tainos, before the arrival of the colonizers. 
From this conjunction of elements, from the important person who was 
Don Bernal and from the Taíno essence of the Dominican comes the naming 
and later concept. PAPAUPA, an outstanding person. We already had a name.
