Tortuga Rum Cakes No. 1

| 16/01/2009

(CNS): Porthole Cruise Magazine, the leading cruise and travel publication in the United States has recognized Tortuga Rum Cakes with a 2009 Editor-In Chief Award, naming them, for the fifth consecutive year, “Best Cruise Souvenir” in the February 2009 issue.  Tortuga Rum Cakes are sold in onboard gift shops of more than 100 cruise ships throughout the Caribbean. 

A product of the Tortuga Rum Company, headquartered in Grand Cayman, the cakes are baked from a four generations old family recipe and recognized as the number one export of the Cayman Islands.
"Given the consistent quality and great taste of Tortuga Rum Cakes, it was again an easy choice for best cruise souvenir," said Bill Panoff, publisher and editor-in-chief of Porthole Cruise Magazine. "I can’t remember a time when I returned from a cruise without one — or several."
Porthole Cruise Magazine’s annual Editor-In Chief Awards are personally selected by Panoff, who each year taps his travel industry expertise to honour cruise lines, island merchants, ports, resorts and others that he sees as being among the best in the business.
“We are proud to again be recognized as ‘best cruise souvenir’,” said Monique Hamaty-Simmonds, president of Tortuga Imports/Tortuga Rum Cake Company, whose family started the business in 1984. “Who would have imagined that a family recipe could create a world-wide gourmet food business, and that so many people would love our rum cakes. We are dedicated to providing quality products that will merit this recognition for many years to come.”
