Travellers Liquors Has Premium Rums for Every Palate

by Larry Waight

Since its inception on November 2, 1867, Harper’s Bazaar has been a beacon of inspiration for women worldwide, initially focusing on the intricate world of fashion. Yet, as time unfolded, the magazine’s scope broadened, transforming into a revered authority not just in couture but in lifestyle as well. Beyond the realms of fashion, Harper’s Bazaar UK delved into the intricate tapestry of rum culture when this exotic libation soared to unprecedented heights, crossing the £1 billion mark in England. But why rum, you may ask, in a publication once synonymous with corsets and bustles? The answer lies in rum’s captivating versatility, capturing the attention of both connoisseurs and novices alike.  In Belize, no rum maker does versatility better than the renowned Travellers Liquors Limited, home to some of the country’s finest premium rums.

Travellers Liquors Remains Belize’s Signature Rum Purveyor

While Belize was a latecomer in terms of establishing a vibrant rum industry, this nation has moved at warp speed to catch up with Barbados, Puerto Rico, Cuba, and Jamaica to manufacture superior rums. At the helm of that burgeoning industry lies Travellers Liquors, the family-owned business that has been in operation for over 70 years. 

When Jaime Omario Perdomo Sr.–known as Don Omario–opened his Belize City bar in 1953, coming up with a name for his establishment was easy. The majority of his patrons were travelers who were either visiting or passing through Belize. His enterprise was successful enough to allow him time to pursue the hobby that became his passion: rum production. Using innovative methodologies and ingredients, his unique rum blends quickly replaced other brands that filled his bar’s liquor shelves.
