Don Q Cristal Rum is a clear, light, premium rum most noted for its mixability and smoothness. A five-column distillation process is used to create our flagship rum, filtered for purity. Unlike most clear rums, Don Q uses a multiple distillation system to produce a cleaner, more refined, and more delicate flavor profile. So a Cristal drink will sip smoother than a drink made with another rum. It's then aged for 1½ 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. Don Q Cristal Rum has bright crystalline nose, smooth and clean with molasses and rummy notes. Light refreshing cocktails; mix with soda, cola, tonic, sour mix or juices such as cranberry, pineapple and orange. Pair with light appetizers and seafood. Try it. You'll see. Enjoy!
