Reminiscent of Caribbean pirates’ rum bottles washing ashore, container loads of Tortuga Rums recently landed at Majestic Distilling in Lansdowne Maryland. Majestic, a 63 year old distilling company, is the exclusive United States importer for Tortuga Rums of the Cayman Islands.
Tortuga Gold Rum and Tortuga Light Rum are now in 10 states and the company anticipates complete distribution by summer, states a press release.
Founded in 1984, the Tortuga Rum Company is the largest duty-free liquor business in the Cayman Islands. Its premium and flavoured Tortuga Rums are special blends of Jamaican and Barbados rums and a favourite souvenir of the millions of cruise passengers and other tourists who visit the Caymans each year. Prior to this agreement with Majestic, Tortuga Rums were only available in the Cayman Islands. The company also is known for its world famous Tortuga Caribbean Rum Cakes, the #1 export of the Cayman Islands.
Majestic offers Tortuga Rums in 1.75, litre and 750ml bottles. Tortuga Banana Rum, Coconut Rum and Spiced Rum will be introduced later in the year.
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 www.majesticdistilling.com
