Default Don Q stakes a claim in Texas

By Caribbean Business Online Staff.

Puerto Rico-based Destilerнa Serrallйs, Inc. has opened a stateside headquarters in the Lone Star state.

The Ponce company, which produces its flagship product Don Q rum, has set up a U.S. headquarters in the Dallas-suburb of Irving, Texas. The company was founded by the Serrallйs family in 1865.

The Irving office will serve as the national headquarters for all U.S. employees and will be the permanent base for a staff of four, a spokesman for the company told the Dallas Business Journal.

The company said in a statement it chose Dallas because of the city’s strategic centralized location, which will help the company better serve major markets in the U.S., the Dallas Business Journal reported.

“The opening of the U.S. office marks a turning point in Destilerнa Serrallйs Inc.’s commitment to expanding the reach of its flagship brand DQ in the U.S. market. We are thrilled to be re-introducing the heritage, quality and value of one of the world’s finest rum to the U.S.,” said John Eason, vice president and national sales manager. “We have the fortunate task of bringing the No. 1 rum from Puerto Rico, the land of rum, to an ever more discerning consumer.”

Some of the rums produced under the Don Q brand include Don Q. Cristal, Don Q Gold, Don Q. Aсejo, Don Q Grand Aсejo and Don Q Limуn.

Serrallйs USA said it’s in the process of introducing new brands: Don Q Mojito and Don Q Coco.
