Not Rum but intesting....

From Wiki

Seco Herrerano is considered the national alcoholic beverage of Panama. Triple distilled from sugarcane, it is traditionally used straight or in mixed drinks as a replacement for rum or vodka. It is a clear liquor that is sold at seventy proof. There are actually multiple brands of Seco, but Herrerano made by the Varela family invented the Seco in 1908, Seco Herrerano is Panamá´s national drink and is the most widely available and popular of all brands.Varela Hermanos produces more than a million cases of Seco every year and it is sold to more than 65 countries around the world.

You can mix or blend Seco Herrerano with almost anything, from tropical fruits to liquors. One of the more famous drinks made with seco is "Chichita Panamá", made with grapefruit and pinnapple juice, it is still a sensation after more than 40 years whe it was very popular in Panamá. In the atlantic side of the country, Seco Herrerano is drink even with milk (colloquially known as "seco con vaca") and coconut water.

Varela Hermanos also produces the wonderful Ron Abuelo line, much-loved in these parts.

Perhaps an inquiry to:

Ricardo Henríquez
Research and Development Manager

might be a good place to start.
