A Taste of Sweet Success at Don Papa Rum’s ‘Sugarlandia’

A PROUDLY Filipino alcohol label, Don Papa Rum marked its fifth anniversary this September by paying homage to its roots, the Island of Negros.

It was a fitting celebration to the Sugar Bowl of the Philippines indeed as Pineapple Lab was transformed into a festive Sugarlandia. It was also a taste of sweet success for Don Papa Rum, which is not only available here in the country but also in 21 countries across Europe, Asia Pacific, North America, and South Africa.

Here’s the many happening as guests immersed in a world of flavors, aromas, sights, sounds, and movements of Sugarlandia:

First, guests were transformed into creatures of Sugarlandia through a mask making activity as they personalized and embellished masks that represent Sugarlandia fauna.

The mask-making activity unleashed everyone’s creativity.

This transformation was forged by “The Ritual,” a drink for the wholeheartedly independent curated by the Don Papa mixologists, Enzo Lim and Kathryn Eckstein. These libations left guests with the rich taste of Sugarlandia.

The movement of Sugarlandia was expressed by the dance performances of Fundacion Central Flamenco, inspired by the animals and creatures found from within the land. The sounds were provided by the performances of one-man-band Hoochie Coochie Mikkie and Mario Serrano.
