St. Croix and it's Rum newsletter

The Rum Issue

Dear St. Croix Friend,

Today may be National Rum Day, but the truth is, here on St. Croix, every day is considered Rum Day.  It's a big part of our island's history, our cultural identity, and our most famous export.  Today we're celebrating our long love affair with rum by highlighting the two rum companies that proudly call St. Croix home.

Cruzan Rum

CRUZAN RUM  declares "without the Cruzan, it's just rum."  The mega successful Cruzan Rum brand may have hit the big time, but the official heart of Cruzan Rum will always remain firmly rooted on St. Croix.  How lucky we are that St. Croix is the only place you can visit the distillery, where the Nelthropp family still oversees the daily production of our most famous export, and welcomes guests to the Visitor Center for touring and tasting.  Even their marketing campaign gives a nod to home.  "Welcome to the Don't Hurry".     DETAILS HERE

Captain Morgan

Captain Morgan
CAPTAIN MORGAN  moved the production of their world-famous Captain Morgan Spiced Rum to St. Croix approximately 5 years ago, and received a very warm Crucian welcome. Their visitor center and 1 hour guided tour include a surround sound movie theatre experience, tram ride through the distillery, and visits to the tasting tavern and gift shop. The venue is often used for private parties, too.  You may even spot the Captain while you're there.  DETAILS HERE
