Tortuga cooks up US deal

Tortuga Rum Company has named Majestic Distilling as the exclusive United States importer for Tortuga Rums.

Based in Lansdowne Maryland, Majestic is a 62 year old distilling company doing business in 35 states. The agreement rapidly provides Tortuga Rum with well-established distribution throughout the United States.

‘Now people across America can enjoy our premium Tortuga Rums as well as our world-famous Tortuga Rum Cakes and other gourmet products that are available through Tortuga Imports in Miami,’ says Robert Hamaty, who founded Tortuga Rum Company in 1984 in Grand Cayman more than 20 years ago.

Tortuga Rum Company has grown to become the largest duty-free liquor business in the Cayman Islands. The company’s line of premium and flavoured Tortuga Rums are special blends of Jamaican and Barbados rums and previously were only available for purchase in the Caymans and select retail liquor stores in Florida.

Maryland’s oldest independent distillery, Majestic Distilling Company was founded in 1943 by Zellic Cohen and now is owned and operated by his son Victor. The company provides quality products and packaging at consumer friendly pricing with unprecedented service to its wholesale network. See

The first three Tortuga Rums of the Cayman Islands to be distributed by Majestic include Tortuga Light Rum, Tortuga Gold Rum and Tortuga Spiced Rum.

Tortuga Rum Cakes and Gourmet Products, recognized as the # 1 export of the Caymans, are available in gift and specialty food departments and gourmet stores throughout the Caribbean and North America.
