Default Cruzan rum

I'm kicking myself for not buying some of this rum while on our cruise. St. Thomas had it and the ship had it. We just didn't want to have to carry the bottle around St. Thomas and then didn't get it on the ship. Does anyone know where I can get this rum? Is there anyplace in St. Thomas that I can order it from and have it shipped to the states? Any suggestions. I think my next cruise will have to include St. Thomas again and this time just buy the rum. The rum factory at Blackbeards Castle had a sample package of 4 flavors for less than 14.00. Jeez, I sure wish I had bought it then

I've seen it in just about ever liquor store I've been in here in the states. Heck.. they even carry it in the grocery stores here. You should be able to get it no problem.

Thanks Dina, I didn't even think about it being available local. I very seldom go in liquor stores, but I think I will have to make a stop. We tried it and really liked it, now I need some for the house. Thanks again.

Just an FYI - we always buy Cruzan on the ship and bring back home with us... bigger bottles for less $$$ than what it costs in the liquor stores... at least that is the case here in New Hampshire.

We love Cruzan Rum and picked it up dirt cheap in the port at Puerto Rico. We bought light, dark, spiced, and coconut for about $3-4 per liter. I know that PR is a U.S. Territory, but I still expected them to hold it because it was basically duty free. But when I got on the ship, I walked right through with it and no one said a word to me.

I live in Orlando and you can find Cruzan Rum in any liquor store here, just not at the same prices as on the cruise..you can't beat 4 for 20 bucks

Yes, I think this week-end I will be checking out the liquor stores around here to see if I can find some, at a higher price of course. I won't make that mistake again, somebody will carry that bottle around!!

Cruzan rum is probably my favorite-mango, specifically...

You can get it just about anywhere. The bigger bottles do cost more here, but the smaller bottles are priced the same as on the island.

I found some yesterday at, I got the Blackberry flavor, I'm sitting here having a drink with it right now. It is very good. I'll have to try some of the other flavors.
