Tortuga Rum Company Review and Giveaway


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 Father’s Day.  He said he enjoyed the different flavors, but the original rum cake remains his favorite.  Tortuga was gracious enough to send me a few samples as well, and my favorite by far is the Orange Taste of Florida.   The Tortuga Taste of Florida also offers Key Lime and Coconut, but I have yet to try them.  They sound delicious and I can’t wait to come up with an excuse to purchase them!  Tortuga also sent me a sample of their Gourmet Rum Flavored Coffee.  Because I am not a coffee drinker, I shared it with a few of my neighbors.  My one neighbor thought it was a creamy and rich coffee and asked if there was more.  I think a bag of Gourmet Rum Coffee would make a great gift.  My other neighbor enjoyed it, but said that he prefers unflavored coffee.

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 a chance to win a Tortuga Picnic Pack.

The Tortuga Picnic Pack includes a Caribbean sauce pack: 5oz bottles of jerk sauce, hell fire hot sauce and gourmet steak sauce; a 10oz jar of pepper jelly; and a 16oz original golden with walnuts rum cake.  If you don’t win, you can order it for only $38.50 which includes shipping anywhere in the United States.
Mandatory Entry: Like The Tortuga Rum Company  on Facebook and leave a comment saying you do and your first name and last initial so I can confirm.
