A nicely put together visitor center/museum/hosted bar right on the main waterfront in Old San Juan. The history of Don Q is presented via photographs and historical items, as well as all of their products are available for sampling. Nice and cool inside, which is more than welcome on the typical hot and humid days.

We stopped by tourist information for directions and we were saddened to learn that the Don Q rum store closed a few months ago and moved back to Ponce, the location of the distillery. At least we were able to get some free rum samples to make up for the walk. Tourist info has samples of all of the rums... More

Since the Don Q distillery is on the other side of the island this is a nice way to get a taste of the Don Q story while in San Juan. There is a small museum with photos and their story in both english and spanish. There are a few branded gift shop items and their whole lineup of rums... More

I went on an afternoon in June 2013. I walked around and read the displays. They're in Spanish and English. I was trying to practice my Spanish, so I read those. I think most people just come in and pretend to read for about 30 seconds and go get their free drink. I had a Pasion (Passionfruit) and pineapple juice.... More

This small mini museum captures the essence and history of Don Q. You can learn about, drink and purchase Don Q there. We had the place to ourselves (first thing in the morning), so were able to take advantage of a couple of different drinks. No visit to Old San Juan is complete without a visit to Casa Don Q.

Visited with my Girlfriend since we were staying right next door at the Sheraton Old San Juan. Inside there are displays behind glass and descriptions of the entire process for making Don Q rum. There's also a little camera and computer screen that you can take a picture with, select a Don Q themed background and send a picture to... More

We decided to compare Bacardi to the local Don Q and read about this shop which has a bit of history about Don Q Rum and lots of souvenirs. They do offer one free sample which is nice, but there's not really much here. I wouldn't go out of my way for it, but it might be a good way... More
