Spices, rums and jams. The variety and quality are terrific. Jamaal is so gracious and interested in your experiencing all his flavored. Not a better place than this personal store for those specialty rums, jams, spices, and some dried fruit snacks.

Loved this place, found it accidentally while walking through Philipsburg and had a shot of the local rum - way too strong for my liking but the jams were so delicious I bought back 10 bottles!

Those in the know are aware that this is tastier rum than its bigger rival on the Dutch side. You can buy Ma Doudou rums all over St. Martin, but if you're really dedicated, you can find the mothership on the French side in Cul...More

The bottles vary in size from small airplane type to large 750 ml bottles. If you're on a budget the hip flask size are your best bet, and I think they were three for $30 or so.
