Destilería Serrallés Inc., the producers of Don Q, Puerto Rico’s number-one rum, is proud to announce the release of its Double Aged Vermouth Cask Finish Rum. Destilería Serrallés, and it’s Master Blender, Jaiker Soto, are proud to debut this new rum as part of the distillery’s continued focus on unique barrel-aged expressions.
“Blending innovation, art and science has always been characteristic in the way we have been crafting exceptional spirits for the last 153 years. This new expression has allowed us to collaborate with other high-quality artisans in the industry,” says Roberto Serrallés, Sixth-generation rum maker and Business Development Vice President. “We’ve been excited with the idea of creating unique spirits from unexpected pairings through barrel-aging in recent years, and felt it was the perfect time to enter the category. Our team had been planning this expression for several years, and are grateful to our friends at Mancino Vermouth for helping us bring this dream to fruition with their barrels”, he added.
From the environmentally conscious distillery in Ponce (most recently, winner of a “Green Award” from The Drinks Business, which recognizes leaders in environmental, ethical and sustainable practices within the beverage industry), Soto blends rare rums aged for 5 to 8 years in American white oak casks before resting the spirit for 4 to 6 weeks in Mancino Vermouth Vecchio barrels. Crafted from Italian white oak, these casks carry the distinct aromatics of the fortified wine they once carried, as well as the botanical flavors synonymous with vermouth. This exceptional rum subtly showcases these characteristics, alongside a unique complexity and richness of flavor imparted by the double aging process.
Don Q’s Double Aged Vermouth Cask Finish Rum is available at select liquor stores throughout the country with a MSRP of $49.99.
Alcohol: 80 Proof/40% ABV
