History

The history of Varela Hermanos, S.A. goes back to the year 1908, when Don José Varela Blanco, a young Spanish immigrant, arrived in Panama and founded in the town of Pese, Province of Herrera, the Ingenio San Isidro, the first sugar mill in the recently created Republic of Panama.

In 1936, acceding to the wishes of his three older sons, José Manuel, Plinio and Julio, Don José authorized the distillation of sugar cane juice to produce liquor. This activity would be carried out in a garage on his sugar mill property. This new business was called Hermanos Varela, in honor of the Varela brothers, who from the very beginning, were distinguished by their extraordinary quality.

Before dying, Don José asked his nine children to maintain the cultivation of sugar cane for liquor production as a family heritage.

Today, almost a century later, a third generation heads Varela Hermanos, S.A.

Thus, keeping the familiar tradition and implementing state-of-the-art production sale and marketing techniques, VARELA HERMANOS, S.A. is one of the main liquor producers and distributors of Panama and Central America, and begins the 21st century as one of the most solid and successful companies in our country.

Today the company operates the Destilería Don José where they produce spirits from sugar cane juice and molasses.
