DonQ Gold Rum A Fine Rum from a Sustainable Distiller

Green Lifestyles - DonQ Gold Rum A Fine Rum from a Sustainable Distiller, DonQ distillery operations are a pioneer among spirits producers in clean business practices.

Got2beGreen recently did a unique product review. The product is not one you would think a Green/Eco Friendly site would write about. Our latest product review is for DonQ Gold Rum made famous as being the first rum used in the creation of the very first Pina Colada. Aside from the Pina Colada claim to fame, DonQ Gold Rum has won various awards in 2006, 2008, and 2010. Since all of our staff is over 21 years of age we sampled the DonQ Gold rum poured in a glass unmixed. We found the DonQ Rum to be very smooth with no harsh or bitter aftertaste. We are sure the DonQ Gold Rum would enhance a mixed cocktail drink like Pina Coladas or Mai Tais, however this rum is so good it can be sipped on its own or cooled over ice. Read More »
