Tortuga Rum Company is a twenty-five year old family-owned business that is proud of their long tradition of making the finest Caribbean rum cakes and gourmet products. Their moist, delicious rum cakes are made from a secret family recipe that has been delighting consumers for years. Although their main bakery remains in Grand Cayman, Tortuga’s popularity has allowed them to expand to the Barbados, Jamaica , and the Bahamas. To keep up with the demand, Tortuga Rum Company has also expanded to Miami, Fl where they manage the worldwide distribution, mail orders, food services, and online sales.
The Tortuga Rum Company is more than just cake. They are the “largest duty free liquor business in the Cayman Islands with 18 stores throughout Grand Cayman.” They offer a wide variety of flavored cakes, coffees, chocolates, and sauces. When you get a chance, I would encourage you to explore their website. They have fabulous ideas for gifts for loved ones, or for yourself! They even have a variety of gift baskets to choose from.
I had my first experience with Tortuga when I went on a cruise to the Caribbean. I remembered my Dad commenting on how good they were, so of course I had to give them a shot. Each cake is individually wrapped and then vacuumed sealed. This seal makes it difficult to open without scissors, but it keeps the cakes so fresh and moist. I recently bought my Dad a mixed 6 pack of mini cakes for a special occasion. He said he enjoyed the different flavors, but the original rum cake remains his favorite. I think my favorite was the Orange Taste of Florida Cake. Last wee, Tortuga was gracious enough to send me a small Original Rum Cake and a box of Chocolate Rum Turtles with Sea Salt to review. These treats have all the yummy goodness of a traditional turtle candy, but with a little added twist that makes them unique to Tortuga. They are sure to be a family favorite.
The Tortuga Rum Company offers too many wonderful products to be able to cover them in a single post, but if you would like a chance to sample some of them, you are in luck. The generous people from The Tortuga Rum Company have offered one lucky reader of Between the Lines their own box of Chocolate Rum Turtles with Sea Salt.
