    By now you’ve noticed the pumpkin spice flavored products that have invaded nearly every aisle of the grocery store, and the menus of almost every dessert shop.
    The leaves have started to show off their fall colors, and are becoming piles on the ground perfect for jumping.

    Mornings are filled with crisp cool air and a longing for that first cup of coffee. It’s hard to deny the aroma of fresh ground coffee, the cozy warm flavors that dance on your tongue, and the welcome dose of caffeine. Tortuga gourmet coffees are made only from 100% Arabica beans, a superior grade of coffee valued for its flavor and aroma. Our packages come with a 'freshness seal' that locks in the taste to ensure the very finest cup of coffee.

    So let us make your mornings delightful with our Tortuga Rum Cream Coffee. And for those who embrace all things pumpkin this season, here is a complimentary recipe for homemade Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer. Made with all-natural ingredients and no refined sugar. Filled with pumpkin, spices, vanilla and maple syrup. Ready in 5 minutes!

  • Tortuga's Throwback Thursday

    tortuga
    Throwing it back to 34 years ago, when Captain Robert Hamaty and his wife Carlene noticed that tourists exploring the Cayman Islands would often leave with memorabilia and products, none of which were authentically Caribbean. That one observation is what started what we know and love as Tortuga Rum Cakes.

    They introduced the first rums of the Cayman Islands, primarily to appeal as a souvenir to the growing tourist and cruise passenger business. In 1987, they opened the first Tortuga duty free liquor store and later that year, introduced the now world-famous Tortuga Caribbean Rum Cake. This four-generation-old family recipe has won Tortuga Rum Cakes the "Best Cruise Souvenir" award by Porthole Cruise Magazine for 13 consecutive years.

    Now we offer rum cakes in a variety of flavors, coffee, sauces, and high-quality chocolate treats. You can find our products in duty-free shops across all major North American and Caribbean airports, in onboard gift shops of more than 100 cruise ships, and shipped around the world directly from our website.

  • Summer Grilled Desserts

    Tortuga Rum Cakes & Whipped Cream

    When summer berries hit their seasonal best, we can't get enough. They're nature’s candy, that even the kids can't say no to. So naturally pairing it with our Tortuga Golden Original Rum Cake is a no brainier.

    After dinner is cooked, leave the grill on and whip up an easy dessert (grill marks included). Enjoy a piece of our Tortuga Golden Original Rum Cake right off the grill, or add your favorite summer fruits like raspberries and blueberries. Don't forget the whipped cream, although not a fruit, it is always a good choice. Have you tried Alton Brown's 5 star whipped cream recipe?

    Tortuga Rum Cakes are versatile no matter the style of wedding. Like Tortuga’s small, 4-oz. rum cakes given in an elegant welcome box, featured on Martha Stewart Weddings Instagram. These luxurious gift boxes featured sunscreen, rose gold pineapple shot glasses, and of course, a Tortuga Rum Cake.

    For those who are more free spirited, we love how Wedding Belles Jamaica thought to pair our rum cakes with local post cards for a more laid-back, beachy welcome bag.

    Or why not feature Tortuga Rum Cakes as favors for all your guests, like Laurie and Jason's beach wedding, highlighted on Destination Weddings & Honeymoons. Their subtle Disney-themed wedding was complete with Little Mermaid music and delicious Tortuga moments for everyone to enjoy.
