Overview

The Bahamas Rum Cake Factory story begins in the heart of downtown Nassau, Bahamas in the year 2000. George Bates, originally from the United Kingdom founded a recipe that would inspire his “Original” Rum Cake. Everyone loved his recipe so much that he decided to open a small Rum Cake shop, a store that has since then grown into the most favorite brand of Rum Cake in The Bahamas. Today, the Bahamas Rum Cake Factory still sits in the same location it started at, and has created a culture so irresistibly delicious that in 2014 it was recognized by the state as the Official Rum Cake of The Bahamas. Loaded with our top-secret ingredients, baked to perfection, and gently marinated in our signature brand of Ole Nassau Bahamian Rum, our cakes have become not just a dessert, but also an important part of a new lifestyle for both Bahamians and tourists.

Make sure you go early in the day if you want to see the cakes being made. The cakes were tasty though.

Tortuga and Barcadi rum cakes are not even close. The prices are also better than the other 2 brands.

There is no charge to enter the store and, as always, there are free samples to try before you buy. Taking a tour is the easiest way to get to us to beat the heat during the summer months.
