First let me say, this is the most unique place that you will ever visit! The family that owns the place were there when we went and they were super nice and very accommodating since we were cruisers, which is something that a lot of Caribbean locals look down on since we don't stay all that long. We were able... More

A couple of years ago, a friend of mine brought me back a bottle of the Vanilla Guavaberry Rum to try and I fell in LOVE with it. I knew that whenever I took a trip to St. Maarten that this place would be a place to visit. Recently, I made my first trip to this island and made a... More

Great open air shop in Phillipsburg with plenty of local product for shoppers to sample. We tried every guavaberry rum variation available for sampling and while they were all good, we're partial to the original guavaberry and the mango rum. The store also sells a number of aged rums, hot sauces, spices, and other interesting products. The last time we... More

I stopped in this shop on a hot day to buy a Guavaberry Sunrise to cool off a bit. I was pleasantly surprised by the staff member who suggested I try a sample beforehand since the cocktail was very sweet and not to everybody's taste.. How classy to think of a customer rather than a sure sale!

This place was very friendly to offer us ONE sample of the original guavaberry rum they offered. However, they would not let us try any of the flavored rums even though they had them out to make mixed drinks with. Also, when we told them we were no longer interested in buying anything they seemed a bit rude and wanted... More

This is some good stuff. Fee samples of their products. Small, but worth it. Apparently there are many ways to use it and the provide free recipes too.

Fun little storefront with a fantastic island feel. Hard to beat the Guavaberry Coladas you can make with the spirits! A must see in Philipsburg.

We went in here 2 times and no one spoke to us the first time. The second time someone did but they acted like it was a real chore. We bought our guavaberry products at Old Amsterdam Cheese Company instead. It is in one of the marinas going towards the cruise ship terminal. Same place as Chesterfields restaurant. They were...

When we leave the shack, it is with no less than 10 bottles of rum every year. The people are great and the rum is better. Can't wait to go back next year.
