Don Q is produced at the Serralles Distillery, a pioneer among spirits producers when it comes to clean, environmentally conscious business practices. They have invested millions of dollars and significant time and brainpower in the creation and implementation of their distillery's waste treatment system. Connecting a series of self-contained processes into an innovative cycle of waste treatment and energy harvest.
All the Don Q Rums are produced sustainably, using a unique starter culture of yeast. The rums are distilled in some of the rum industry's most efficient column stills, producing a light, yet complex and creamy spirit. Post aging Don Q do not add any sugar to their rums, any sweetness comes from the casks alone.
DON Q CRISTAL
Unlike most clear rums, Don Q uses a multiple distillation system to produce a cleaner, more refined, and more delicate flavour profile. A Cristal drink will sip smoother than a drink made with another rum. It is aged for 1½ to 5 years in American white oak barrels to impart a touch more smoothness then filtered through charcoal to remove colour.
Nose: Light cinnamon and nutmeg. Perhaps a touch of white chocolate.
Palate: Huge fruit notes appear here. Pineapple and a very subtle hint of citrus.
Finish: More lively tropical fruit.
