At The Westin Grand Cayman we know the importance of a sublime piña colada, and we also know that the key to this drink is quality rum. Want to bring back some Cayman Island spirits with you? Look no further than Tortuga Rum and Cake Factory.
The business opened in 1984 under the direction of Captain Robert Hamaty and his wife Carlene. What began as a rum store intended to introduce Cayman Island rum to the growing tourist business, over time, evolved into a duty free liquor store and Tortuga Caribbean Rum Cake distributor.
Carlene, a baker, made homemade rum cakes for many years but it wasn’t until friends encouraged her to sell her products that she realized the demand for her cakes. Now, Tortuga Rum Cakes are the #1 export of the Cayman Islands.
The Tortuga Rum and Cake Factory sells duty free rum and Carlene’s famous Tortuga Rum Cakes, and is a close car ride from the hotel. Tortuga Rum and Cake Factory: NW Point Road West Bay, Cayman Islands
