Since 1953, TRAVELLERS LIQUORS LTD. has been providing Belizeans and visitors alike with a broad and unique assortment of distilled and fermented products. Founder and Patriarch of the family, Master Blender Omario Perdomo, gave the company its name because of its original success serving travellers along the main route into and out of Belize City.

In 1992, the company completely upgraded the distillation facility, stepping away from other distilleries which use acids to speed up the fermentation process. TRAVELLERS employs high-test molasses with natural fermentation, coupled with a double-distillation method for smoother taste. Apart from the traditional distilled products like rum and vodka, TRAVELLERS also produces liqueurs and wines from Belizean fruits ... the only Belizean refinery that does this.

History was made in 1995, when TRAVELLERS passed standards set for vodka by the U. S. Bureau of Tobacco, Alcohol & Firearms, clearing the way for its first shipment of 1,600 gallons of Cane Juice Vodka to the U. S. for sale in 39 states. One year later, TRAVELLERS captured two awards at the ANNUAL RUM TASTING contest, the only company of the 131 who entered to win in two major categories. They are the producers of Belize's oldest and only aged rums on the market today.

Using secret family formulas combined with multiple distillations, special aging techniques and unique Belizean juices and flavorings, the Perdomo family is extremely proud to present to you an award winning collection of products to complement even the most discerning taste.
