Don Q Cristal Rum
Don Q Cristal rum is a multiple distilled white rum produced at Destileria Serrallés in the town of Ponce in southern Puerto Rico. Aged in American white oak barrels to round out the spirit, this works well as a replacement for vodka in a variety of cocktails.
The entry-level expression from the Don Q rum range – the Don Q Cristal is made using multiple distillation method to achieve its desired flavor profile and allowed to rest in American oak barrels to help boost its smooth character. Great for use in cocktails.
Unlike most clear rums, Don Q uses a multiple distillation system to produce a cleaner, more refined, and more delicate flavor profile. So a Don Q drink will sip smoother than a drink made with another rum. So smooth, in fact, that you can substitute Cristal in a vodka drink, and most won’t be able to tell the difference. It’s then aged in American white oak barrels to impart a touch more smoothness.
It’s then filtered multiple times to remove color and sediment. Cristal is the base rum for Don Q’s wide variety of offerings.
Aged for 1-1/2 to 5 years in American white oak barrels to impart a touch more smoothness. So smooth, in fact, that you can substitute Cristal in a vodka drink, and most won’t be able to tell the difference.
