Look to Travellers Liquors for a True Belize Rum Experience

by Larry Waight

While almost every nation can lay claim to one type of liquor that best defines its history and culture, you would be hard-pressed to find a beverage that comes with as much drama, romance, and turmoil as rum. The preferred libation of beach bums, pirates, and legends like Ernest Hemingway, this sugar-based beverage has played a part in many of the world’s historic eras.

While Jamaica, Puerto Rico, and Cuba have been most closely identified as rum capitals, a new leader is emerging in the production of this much-beloved beverage: Belize. Ready to supplant the Bacardi, Barcelo, Tanduay, and Captain Morgan dynasties, Belize rum is fast becoming a preferred choice of people around the world. If you’ve got only a short time to spend in Belize and are looking to sample the best of the best, then look to Travellers Liquors for a true Belize rum experience.  

It’s a Family Affair

The manufacturers at Travellers Liquors make no bones about the fact that the company objective is becoming “the largest and most successful Belizean Rum company.”  They’ve been succeeding at that objective thanks in large part to founder Don Omario Perdomo as well as his children, and grandchildren–each of whom carries on the commitment to producing award-winning rums. This is a family enterprise and that’s another factor that makes this Belize rum company a formidable market competitor.

When in Belize, enjoy a variety of rums bearing the Travellers label. And if simply looking at the bottles triggers a longing for a cocktail, you may find yourself asking, when’s the best time to enjoy a glass of Travellers?

In our opinion, any time is a great time for a rich and throaty rum drink–especially if you sip it in a hammock under a tree on the beach.

All Belize Celebrations Call for Rum Toasts

You may already have missed the early summer events like the Belize Chocolate Festival and Hopkins’ Mango Street Fest, but there are still plenty of upcoming affairs that make ideal excuses for partaking of your favorite rum recipe, especially when made with a Travellers rum.


The Belize International Film Festival is set for this fall, and Belize Lobster Festivals fill many calendar spaces between July 14th and 16th. What’s the best excuse of all to drink your fair share of rum, though? The upcoming Belize International Music and Food Festival is slated to take place on July 29th and 30th.

Additionally, ask for this Belize rum brand when you dine out. Then, get into the spirit of the occasion by employing your favorite toast as often as possible. Whether you prefer to lift your tumbler while saying, “Cin! Cin!”; “Sante”; “Prost”; or “Cheers” in the company of good friends, when Travellers is the brand, you’ll be understood!
