Distileria Serrallés is a rum producer located in Ponce, Puerto Rico, known for its Don Q and Captain Morgan rum brands.
The Serrallés family was a Spanish family from Cataluña that established its links to Puerto Rico in the mid 1830s. They were successful in harvesting and refining cane sugar and exporting it to the United States, the United Kingdom and France. The plantation virtually became a company town, and eventually had its own rail line, workers' housing, transportation fleet, commissary, and private -later public- airport (Ponce's Mercedita Airport). Most of these operations were eventually annexed to the municipality of Ponce, in whose lands the plantation is based.
