Blackbeard's Cayman Islands
Blackbeard’s Rum Company began as a family owned retail store in 1986 owned and operated by the late Mr. & Mrs. Keith Baldwin and their children Lynn & Bill.
The company and their single retail location quickly grew here in Grand Cayman to become a multiple-store retail business, an importer and wholesaler and exclusive producer of authentic Cayman Islands Rums and Spirits and award winning Rum Cakes.
By 2005, Blackbeard’s Rum Company had not only survived the devastating Hurricane Ivan of 2004 but had flourished as an importer, distributor, producer and leading retailer with seven prime locations.
The company was acquired in April of 2007 and subsequently re-structured and re-named Blackbeard’s Trading Co. Ltd. It was merged with the Active Capital Holding, Cayman Distributors Ltd in April 2008 to form the Cayman Islands leading wholesale and retail beverage company and is now positioned and resourced for continued and exponential growth.
Blackbeard’s provides the best combination of selection, service and convenience when shopping for wines, spirits and beers.
Our three retail stores are in the best locations on the island, with our two largest stores being directly adjacent to the island's premier supermarkets, Foster's Food Fair in the Strand on Seven Mile Beach and Hurley’s at Grand Harbour. In addition, our Seven Mile Shops location provides great convenience in getting on and off West Bay Road in a jiffy!
All our locations feature a comprehensive selection of top quality beers and spirits and a wine assortment second to none. Wine is our specialty at Blackbeard’s, wine that you can enjoy and afford all the time.
Our buyers seek out exciting and exclusive wines at great prices and we feature trained wine specialists in each location, ready to help you find something you'll be sure to enjoy. With over 500 wines at our Grand Harbour store, over 350 wines at our Strand store and over 200 wines at Seven Mile Shops, we definitely have something for everyone.
