History of Blackbeard's Rum Company
Blackbeard's Rum Company is a Caymanian success story that started small in 1986 by the late Mr. Keith Baldwin (1926-1999), who in many ways had an positive impact on the success of the Cayman Islands tourism industry and has since developed into a thriving enterprise offering a wide range of locally produced spirits and Rum Cakes which are very popular with residents and tourists alike.
Starting with just one retail store on Crewe Road, Blackbeard�s has today become a large corporation with six retail outlets, a full service wholesale division and the only blending facility in the Cayman Islands. Along the way, the company has never lost its small-company focus on superior quality and warm, friendly service.
The first products introduced were the Blackbeard�s line of premium rums, which today remain the only produced in the Cayman Islands. The line includes 12 different selections, including a Special Reserve Aged Rum and the Island favorite, Coconut Rum. The rums have received rave reviews and plenty of international recognition. In the past five years alone, they have won 24 awards at the prestigious International Rum Tasting events held annually in Barbados.
Based on the success of Blackbeard�s rums, the company has more recently introduced two new lines: Cayman Ice gin is a high-quality, competitively priced alternative to imported brands, and has quickly gained popularity with locals. The Baldwin family of liquors includes ten different original formulas, all blended here on the Island, including such favorites as Amaretto, Cay-Lua, Triple-Sec, Mango Schnapps. With their distinctive labels, these new lines make very attractive and uniquely Caymanian souvenirs.
In addition to the growing on-Island popularity of the brands, Blackbeard�s is pleased to note international interest in its products, especially the recently introduced Blackbeard�s Rum Cakes. Baked in their own bakery using, of course, the company�s premium rums, the cakes are finding a ready export market in destinations around the world. �We have noticed that the visitors to the Islands are always looking for gift items that are made in Cayman. We have pleased to offer something that is truly Caymanian, and of course everyone enjoys a taste of the Islands.� says Bill Baldwin, Managing Director. As more and more visitors carry these delicacies home, orders have been following in from overseas.
Modern technology has helped to propel this local venture squarely into 21st century. While Blackbeard�s prides itself on the use of traditional recipes and formulas, it has also harnessed the power of the internet and other modern communications to boost its marketing efforts. The company established its Internet presence, http://www.BalckbeardsRumCompany.com , some time ago and is already in the process of producing a newer and more sophisticated version of its website. Overseas customers can order rum cakes online and have the products shipped anywhere in the world. Not content to rest on its laurels, Balckbeard�s is looking to the future and planing for continued growth. �Our innovative rum cake bakery has the capacity to produce several thousand cakes per day,� notes Bill Baldwin. �That should allow us to reach quite a few international customers.�
Blackbeard�s products are available at the company�s five full service liquor stores in Grand Cayman and in hotels, bars, restaurants and liquor stores throughout the Cayman Islands. Be sure to visit the new Blackbeard�s bakery and souvenir shop downtown on the waterfront at the Duty Free Mall.
