Destilería Serrallés, Inc.
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 154 years by Destilería Serrallés, the birthplace of Puerto Rican rum.
The Serrallés family’s rum making tradition began in 1865 at Hacienda Mercedita on the south coast of Puerto Rico, where Don Juan Serrallés, an immigrant from Cataluña, Spain, made his first cask of rum using a copper still he brought to the island from France. After prohibition ended in 1933, the Serrallés family developed Don Q rum, the preferred rum on the island, maintaining its traditional light, dry, Spanish style rum; without the use of added sugars. Don Q was the rum used in the creation of the first Piña Colada in 1954, by Ramon “Monchito” Marrero, at the Caribe Hilton in San Juan.
Currently, the Serrallés rum production is anchored in the family’s traditional methods of clean molasses fermentation, multiple column distillation, ageing in American white oak barrels and artisan blending of rums in order to craft smooth, elegant and sophisticated rums considered by critics and connoisseurs to be some of the finest rums available.
The traditional mastery, perfected over six generations, of crafting and blending the best rum reserves in their original Caribbean environment, guarantees the creation of a portfolio of premium rums with elegant structure and perfect balance.
At the core of Don Q’s ethos lies its dedication and commitment to responsible environmental practices culminating in being awarded the Spirits Business’ “The Renewable Energy Implementation Award 2017.”
