— Tortuga Press Release—Get Tortuga Rums and Rum Cakes in the USA

Two outstanding expansion opportunities have developed for Tortuga International Holdings this Fall, starting with the granted of a licence by the US Government to import Tortuga’s newly packaged and rebranded 5-year-old rum and 12-year-old rum.

“We are excited about this opportunity to share some of the finest aged rum blends from the Caribbean with consumers in the United States,” said Marcus Simmonds, CEO of Tortuga International Holdings Limited. “We are currently in discussions with U.S. liquor distributors and brokers for placement of the newly packaged 5-year-old and 12-year-old rums in 2016.”

The full line of the award-winning Tortuga rum is manufactured in Barbados and Jamaica. The latest recognition for this exceptional rum was announced earlier this year when the 5-year-old Tortuga Rum won Gold by The Spirits Business magazine, published early 2015.

In addition, Tortuga Rum Cakes are on the shelves of two of the country’s largest retailers in the U.S.: Costco and Sam’s Club (a division of Wal-Mart) this Christmas Season. These two “big box” wholesale clubs are among the largest retailers in the world. Additionally, talks have been finalized for the Tortuga Rum Cakes to be available at 50 of the 113 U.S. stores operated by Total Wines & More.

“We are proud of our island brand and are always very pleased when we can share the taste of the Caribbean with the U.S. and the world,” said Tortuga founder Robert Hamaty. “These new opportunities, for the rums and for the rum cakes, are our way of proliferating the brand through different channels.”

Founded in the Cayman Islands in 1984 as the Tortuga Rum Company, Ltd., Tortuga International is part of Jamaica Producers Group of Companies and has bakeries and operations in Grand Cayman, Jamaica, Barbados, and the Bahamas.

Tortuga is known worldwide for its authentic Caribbean rum cakes, rum, other gourmet products including Tortuga Rum flavored coffees, award-winning Caribbean sauces, rum fudge, chocolate rum turtles with sea salt, and rum balls.

Tortuga Rum Cake Company, the company’s Miami, Florida subsidiary, handles U.S. Distribution and on-line sales.

Hey Joe, how are ya?

All I have to add is that if Costco starts carrying the rum fudge I'm doomed!

Karma. It's everywhere you're going to be.
