In 1760, a sugar mill began crushing cane at the current site of the Cruzan Rum distillery on the island of St. Croix. Since the early 1800’s the Nelthropp family has lived on and been an integral part of this legendary island’s rich history. Today, the Nelthropp family distills and ages one of the world’s best tasting rums using only natural ingredients and the Cruzan Rum Distillery is recognized for its hand-crafted ultra premium aged rums, as well as its critically acclaimed, natural-tasting flavored rums.
