DON Q DESTILERÍA SERRALLÉS, PONCE, PUERTO-RICO
Puerto Rico is known throughout the world for its excellent rum. The noble tradition of producing the most refined and exquisite rums is an art that has been cultivated for over 150 years by Destilería Serrallés, the birthplace of Puerto Rican rum.
The Serrallés story begins in 1865 at the Mercedita sugar plantation, near the city of Ponce, on Puerto Rico´s southern coast. That year, Don Juan Serrallés, the son of a Spaniard who had settled in the area, produced his first few casks of rum using a copper still he had imported from France.
Currently, the Serrallés manufacturing process is characterized by a multiple distillation system and carbon-active filtration which produces a clear and pure rum. The artisan aging in American white oak casks and careful blending are exclusive recipes of the Serrallés family that have been perfected through six generations.
The traditional mastery of blending the best rum reserves in their true environment, space and time guarantee the continuity of its results: a portfolio of premium rums with distinctive bouquets and perfect balance.
