In 1953, a young man form Belize (then British Honduras) named Jaime Omario Perdomo, along with his supportive wife, Perla, opened a bar called "Travellers". The name came from its success serving traveling clientele along the main route in and out of Belize City. At the time, it was customary that each bar blend their own rum for resale. Don Omario created his blends which quickly became popular as he labeled and branded rum, wine, vodka and exotic liqueurs using local Belizean fruits. Travellers Liquors Ltd. flourished under the direction and inspiration of our founder. As competition from other distilleries grew, Travellers improved consistency within blends leading to the creating of the award winning 1 Barrel Refined Old Rum and 25 other fine products. The tradition lives on through his children and grandchildren who now lead the company.
