Tortuga Rum Cakes have once again
gained a top accolade from Porthole Cruise Magazine.
For the sixth consecutive year Tortuga
Rum Cakes have come away with an Editor-In Chief Award for “Best Cruise Souvenir”
from the cruise and travel publication.
A product of the Tortuga Rum
Company, headquartered in Grand Cayman, Tortuga Rum Cakes are sold in onboard
gift shops of more than 100 cruise ships throughout the Caribbean.
Baked fresh daily in the Caribbean
using only the finest ingredients and a special, five-year-old blend of Tortuga
Gold Rum, every Tortuga Rum Cake is hand glazed before being vacuum packed and
heat sealed – locking in the delicious freshness. Flavours include original
golden with walnuts, chocolate, coconut, Blue Mountain coffee, banana, key
lime, pineapple and cinnamon rum raisin.
“Given the consistent quality
and great taste of Tortuga Rum Cakes, it was again an easy choice for best
cruise souvenir,” said Bill Panoff, publisher and editor-in-chief of Porthole
“I can’t remember a time when
I returned from a cruise without one – or several.”
The awards are personally
selected by Mr. Panoff who each year taps his travel industry expertise to honour
cruise lines, island merchants, ports, resorts and others that he sees as being
among the best in the business.
“Who would have imagined that a family recipe
could create a world-wide gourmet food business, and that so many people would
love our rum cakes?” said Monique Hamaty-Simmonds, president of Tortuga
Imports/Tortuga Rum Cake Company whose family started the business in 1984.
“We are dedicated to providing
quality products that will merit this recognition for many years to come.”
Cruise passengers also can find
Tortuga Rum Cakes at the company’s 18 retail and duty free shops in Grand
Cayman, at Tortuga Bahamas, a franchise bakery and shop in Nassau and Tortuga
CRC Jamaica’s bakery and gift shop in Montego Bay as well as numerous other
gift shops throughout the Caribbean.
