As a life-long SF Giants fan, Rally Monkey Rum is at the bottom of my list, suitable only for washing oil off the driveway.

Interesting. What will happen with Seralles Jim, will they just produce their label rums, Don Q, etc?? That is a lot of business to lose.

Bob, I presume Serralles will be producing for Diageo until the new distillery comes on line at full capacity.

One may also presume that Serralles knew this was coming for a fair amount of time. It will be a big hit for them to absorb and they must feel that they can do so and still remain viable within their core brands.

The funding of the Puerto Rican Government is taking a big whack also in the loss of the rebate of Federal tax from the exported rum. The (now former) Governor Acevedo-Vila remained mostly silent as Diageo was turning the spigot off.
