Informative tour and more free samples than Bacardi

We enjoyed the informative representives and were amazed at how many other labels of rum used Don Q rum. Lots of fun free samples and easy access from the street near the pier.

This is mainly the store where they sell Don "Q' rum in Old San Juan. It is nicely set up and you can enjoy one of the best Piña Coladas of town (for free). Their selection is awsome and, let this be known: Don "Q' is by far Puerto Rico's favorite local rum. Their product is very smooth. Do not... More

This Rum Tour, unlike Bacardi, is situated right downtown Old San Juan (across from the Cruise ship terminals) and if you have a spare 30 minutes, you can pretty much do the entire tour and enjoy your free drink at the end. Its a self paced tour and provides a brief history. Don Q is also known by locals as... More

This is a museum and shop for Don Q rum. It provides a bit of info and history on the Don Q brand and rum making. It is small and quick. It could be a good alternative if you do not want to do the full Bacardi tour and it is easy to get to if you are in Old... More

The workers seem to have the, "I have to be here attitude". They were very short with answers to your questions. Just a general feeling of being in a bother. There were several flavored mini sized (shot glass size) cocktails for samples, but you were only limited to 2. The liquor selection does however include a few that you cannot... More

The Don Q museum is located right across the pier. If you don't have time to visit the Bacardi Rum factory you can drop by to know about the origins of rum, the rum making process and sample a free rum drink. They seem to have guided tours, but we didn't see any tour guide on the day we went.... More

We stumbled upon Casa Don Q as we were dodging the rain. We were so excited to have walked into this really informative 'museum like' setting, rum tasting (1 drink) bar, & shop. A small but classy spot, we were formally introduced to the amazing flavors of DonQ rum! Our favorite concoction: DQ coco & pineapple! By the time we... More
