Destilería Serrallés, the award-winning distillery which produces Don Q Rum, is launching a limited special edition Double Aged Sherry Cask Finish Rum in the UK this August. The special edition of Puerto Rico’s number-one rum will be distributed by specialist premium spirits importer and distributer, Mangrove UK.
This innovative rum has been created by sixth generation rum maker, Roberto Serrallés, and Master Blender, Jaiker Soto, as part of the distillery’s continued focus on unique barrel-aged expressions.
Rums aged for five to eight years in American white oak barrels, have been hand selected and blended, before a further year of aging takes place in select sherry casks previously used in the aging of Spanish Oloroso Sherry.
Destilería Serrallés operates one of the most eco-friendly and environmentally conscious distilleries in the Caribbean, and is a leader in clean, green production techniques with a waste treatment facility and energy harvesting technology.
Roberto Serrallés, sixth-generation rum maker and Business Development Vice President, observes:
“Blending innovation, art and science has been characteristic of the way our family has crafted exceptional spirits for the last 154 years. This unique aging process has resulted in a rum that is complex, elegant and exceptionally pleasant to the palate.”
Nick Gillett, Managing Director, Mangrove UK, comments:
“On-trade specialists looking for an innovative, premium expression that combines taste with being environmentally conscious and an amazing provenance, will welcome this special release from Destilería Serrallés. It has a distinct smoothness and complex flavour best enjoyed neat, on the rocks or in a spirit-forward cocktail.”
The Double Aged Sherry Cask Finish Rum is brilliant mahogany in colour with luminous red flashes. With an aroma of toasted oak, cherry, dried fruit and tobacco, on the palette it hints of delicate charred wood, honey, toasted almonds, raisins, dark chocolate and creamy melted caramel. The rum is 41% ALC/VOL.
