Don Q is produced at the Serrallés 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 GOLD
Don Q Gold is a favourite of those searching for a classic rum taste. With a similar production process to Cristal—but more flavour to punch up a traditional rum cocktail—it’s a blend of rums aged 1½ to 5 years, smooth, and easy to drink. A light carbon filtration process removes impurities but leaves all the delicious rummy flavours intact.
Nose: Slightly herbal. Sweet notes of apple, pear and a little dried raisin.
Palate: Pineapple (seems to be a theme of the range), black pepper, vanilla and a hint of oaky warmth.
Finish: Spicy on the finish with cinnamon and black pepper.
