by Khaila Gentle

Travellers Liquors is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year. Join in on the fun by finding out which Travellers rum is right for you. Plus, keep reading to learn about the special surprise that this Belizean-owned rum distillery has in store for September 6th.

Which Travellers Liquors Rum Is Right for You

Looking for some new libations to imbibe this month? Then you’re in luck. Rum in itself is known for its varied styles and flavors. And, in Belize and beyond, Travellers Liquors Ltd is renowned for its wide array of rums (plus wines and liqueurs, too). Having served the country for seventy years now, this Belizean rum company definitely knows its way around finely aged spirits. If you’re not sure which Travellers rum is right for you and your tastes, fret not. Here are our recommendations for Travellers products to suit every palate and personality:

For the One With a Sweet Tooth

Travellers’ award-winning Kuknat Rum is an excellent choice for anyone who likes their spirits on the sweeter side of things. Made with natural coconut essences, this flavored rum is best enjoyed in a pina colada or the local favorite – panty rippa.

For the One Who Likes to Keep It Simple

Go back to basics with Belize’s first (and favorite) aged rum. One Barrel Rum, aged for a year, has been snagging awards since 1990. Its flavor notes include toffee, sweet caramel, oak, and tobacco. Enjoy it on its own or in a mixed drink.

For the Lover of All Things Vintage

Released in honor of Travellers founder Don Omario Perdomo, this vintage rum was first hand-crafted and aged by Perdomo himself. With earthy notes and hints of coffee and chocolate, it makes the perfect gift for anyone who has no problem splurging on a fine vintage blend.
