Since 1984, Tortuga Rum has been a fixture of the Cayman Islands. They introduced the rums to the Cayman Islands primarily as a souvenier for the rapidly growing tourist industry. In 1987, they opened the first duty free rum-store and shortly after the now famous Tortuga Rum Cake.

By 1990 the demand for the Rum Cakes was so great that they expanded the company with a bakery.

In 1997, a Tortuga Rum Cake Company opened in Miami, Florida. They began to handle worldwide distribution, mail order and online sales. The Tortuga brand is now well-known by more than 20 million annual Caribbean tourists. Tortuga Rum Cakes are now the #1 exported item of the Cayman Islands and was named the "#1 Cruise Souvenir by Porthole Cruise Magazine.

So the next time you visit Grand Cayman, make sure you take a bite out of history-try a Tortuga Rum Cake!
