Known for crafting some of the best rum on the planet, Don Q is back with something special. Destilería Serrallés, the producer of Don Q Rum, has launched the Don Q Rum Tour. This isn’t your typical distillery tour, but an interactive exhibit inside the Museo Castillo Serrallés that honors the brand’s history.
For 157 years, Don Q Rum has been an icon while the experience itself takes place in what was the home of the Serrallés family in Ponce, Puerto Rico, for more than 50 years. Participants in the Don Q Rum Tour will learn all about the history of rum on the island, as well as the craftsmanship of Don Q at the Destilería Serrallés. Destilería Serrallés is the oldest operating distillery in Puerto Rico, which further adds to its charm and allure. Guests will also participate in a mixology workshop and prepare a hand-shaken Piña Colada and Old Fashioned.
Oh, and don’t let us forget, rum tasting directly from the barrel. The exhibit also includes the opportunity to get up close with the rum production process via virtual reality technology.
The exhibition is part of the Puerto Rico Rum Journey initiative in conjunction with the Department of Economic Development and Commerce and Rums of Puerto Rico. The 90-minute tours take place Thursdays – Mondays at 10:30 am, 12:30 pm, and 2:30 pm. Tours are conducted in English and Spanish, and you must be 18+ to attend.
