Don Q

The constant pursuit to perfect the art of distillation has been passed down through six generations of the Serrallés family to create Puerto Rico’s number one rum, Don Q. The rums are named after Don Quixote; just as this famous literary character represents the search for a perfect world, Don Q signifies the family’s quest for perfection in rum. With an enthusiasm rivalled only by their passion for quality, Don Q have invested significant time, knowledge, and resources to make the distillery one of the cleanest and greenest in the spirits industry. A sustainable approach to making Don Q rum leads to a superior product as well as a healthy ecosystem. Not only does the distillery then reap the benefits, they get to do what’s best for the people and wildlife of Puerto Rico and the Caribbean Sea. Aging in American white oak casks and careful blending practices have been perfected over the last 150 years, ensuring that Don Q rums are consistently of a high standard of excellence with distinctive bouquets and balance.

Don Q<br>Gold

Don Q
Gold


ABV: 40%
Pack Size: 6 x 70cl
Country of Origin: Puerto Rico

Production:
With a similar production process to Cristal – but more flavour to punch up a traditional rum cocktail – it’s aged from 2 to 5 years, smooth, and easy-to-drink. The charcoal filtration process removes impurities but leaves all the delicious rummy flavours.

Tasting Notes:
Don Q Gold is a favourite of those searching for a classic rum taste. Sparkling clear straw gold colour with aromatic molasses & slight grassy notes backed up with vanilla and oak. Gentle tannins, vanilla and molasses on the palate with a velvety texture. A remarkably good rum for a gold and for the money; smooth, nicely spicy and just enough fire to let you know you are drinking a real rum!

Awards:
  • Bronze Medal/ Gold Rum Category, Sip Awards 2011
  • Silver Medal, Los Angeles International Wine & Spirits Awards 2011
