St. Maarten Distillers set out to add some diversification to the local economy when it commercially distilling and bottling its own line of locally made rums in the country under the brand – Soualiga Rum. The company currently produces ten flavours of rums at its Simpson Bay distillery from scratch. The flavours are Mango, Guava, White Rhum, Pineapple, Coconut Ginger, Vodka, Aged Rhum, Passion Fruit, Black Cake and Havana Mojito Blend. St. Maarten Distilleries Business Development Officer Kelston Brooks told the Press, the company started making small amounts of the rum at local restaurant Boca Marina two years ago, and it was such a big hit among customers that they decided to branch out and make the product commercially so that more persons can enjoy the great taste of a beverage produced from scratch right here in St. Maarten.
