The history of the Abuelo brand began in 1908 when a young Spanish immigrant, Don José Varela Blanco, founded the country's first sugar mill in the heart of Panama's fertile valley. In 1936, following the wishes of his three eldest sons, José Manuel, Plinio, and Julio, Don José started distilling sugarcane juice for the production of liqueurs, distinguishing himself from the start with products of extraordinary quality. With over a century of existence, Abuelo still belongs to the Varela family, who cultivate more than 1,200 hectares of sugarcane across the country.
