Announcing Pelican Harbor Rum and Pelican Harbor Black Rum! These extraordinary rums were Double-Gold and Silver Medal Winners respectively at the 2016 Wine & Spirit Wholesalers of America Convention and Exposition! “Let Your Spirit Soar” with the unsurpassed quality & flavor of our rums.


Inspired by lazy days, sandy beaches, and endless sunsets, PELICAN HARBOR is crafted to reveal the free spirit in us all. From its crystalized sugar cane beginnings in the Caribbean, we crafted a rum that has a rich caramel-vanilla aroma and smooth island flavor by blending rums from the US Virgin Islands with barrel-aged rums from Martinique, Barbados, Guyana, Trinidad and Jamaica. PELICAN HARBOR is great blended or on the rocks. We hope you enjoy this rum from our family to yours. Arguably one of the best rums on the market!
