In 1865, Juan Serrallés imported a still which he purchased in France and produced his first few casks of rum. He eventually named the rum Don Q in honor of the legendary Spanish fictional character Don Quixote - the classic work of Spanish literature, as the Serrallés family felt that their rums were a classic work of art as well! Soon after, the Don Q brand of rum became very popular in Puerto Rico and the family business began to grow.
