History

The Serrallés story began in 1865 on the Hacienda Mercedita sugar plantation near the city of Ponce on Puerto Rico’s south coast. That year, don Juan Serrallés, the son of a Spaniard who had settled in the area, produced his first few casks of rum using a still he had imported from France.

Today, more than a century later, don Juan’s greatgrandson, Félix Juan Serrallés, Jr., presides over the company that now produces and distributes over 60% of the rum sold on the island.

Serrallés took its big leap forward in 1985 when it acquired the assets of Puerto Rico Distillers, Inc., a subsidiary of the giant Canadian liquor firm Joseph E. Seagram and Sons Ltd. The acquisition of Seagram’s manufacturing facilities in the towns of Camuy and Arecibo, as well as the brand names sold locally by that firm (Palo Viejo, Ron Llave and Granado), enabled Serrallés to more than double its sales volume. In addition, Serrallés acquired the right to manufacture and distribute the Ronrico and Captain Morgan brands in Puerto Rico and several other Caribbean Islands while also producing Ronrico and Captain Morgan for distribution by Seagram’s in the United States.

The company’s CastillO Serrallés serves as both Museum and visitor center. Separate distillery tours are available upon request.

In 1865, Don Juan Serralles imported a still from the French firm Egrot Freres, one of the great pioneers of still design, and installed it on the family's Hacienda Mercedita.

As soon as Prohibition was abolished, Serralles built a new distillery in Ponce.
