Don Q Rum

It’s not all about Bacardi in the world of Puerto Rican rum. The Don Q brand is the one preferred by most Puerto Ricans, so you owe it to yourself to stop in at Casa Don Q to see why. Located directly opposite cruise ship Piers 1 and 2 (and just a few steps east of the La Casita Information Center), Casa Don Q is inside the Edificio Ochoa (corner of Marina and Calle Tanca).

The museum illustrates the origins of rum production on the island. Historical photographs and documents chronicle the story of the Serrallés family, and a video explains the spirit’s production process. Be sure to enjoy the bartender’s specialty, Don Q Dulcinea, a sweet concoction made with orange, pineapple and grapefruit juices, cream of coconut, grenadine and rum – a sure hit with the ladies.

Closed Thursdays during high season winter months. 787-977-1720
