About Rum  and  Cane Spirits from Panama
The leading spirit in Panama, as one might imagine, is rum. While there are entry level examples made here - including some fruit and honey-flavored versions - there are also some outstanding examples, some aged for fifteen years or longer. Displaying flavors of caramel and praline, these are fabulous sipping rums. There are also rum liqueurs made in Panama as well as numerous examples of excellent aguardiente.
