We sampled quite a few varieties of the rum cakes being made in the very small shop. Behind a glass window, we could see how each cake is individually, hand dunked in rum. The salesperson
was so very informative, and we chatted with her easily. She advised us as to how best preserve the cakes in the freezer for future use. As an attraction, there's not much to see, but they hand out samples freely and there's no pressure to buy.

This was our 7th time to Bermuda and probably 4th or 5th time docking at the Royal Naval Dockyard while on a cruise. We always stop in to buy a few rum cakes. They are fresh and the tastiest rum cakes we have ever had. We especially like the rum Swizzle flavors, but feel free to check out the samples of all the flavors while there. the help is friendly. Attached in same building with the Bermuda Glass Factory.

I loaded a whole check in bag full of just these rum cakes. They are amazing and they are no joke. The Rum Swizzle is probably my fave. Since they don't cook the rum out they don't allow children to sample. The rum flavor is very rich and tasty. I probably will have to have them shipped when I run out.

During a NCL cruise to Bermuda over Memorial Day 2013, we visited the Bermuda Rum Cake Company. It is located inside an old machine shop in the Royal Navy Dockyard a short walk from the cruise ship dock. It shares space with the Dockyard glassworks. You can view glassblowing here.

I was amazed at the variety of types of rum cakes that they make using Bermuda's Gosling Black Seal Rum. Favors such as: rum and ginger, black rum fruit cake, rum sizzle, chocolate rum cake, to name a few. I think they try to have at least 6 types of cake available for you to sample.
They have packages of mini cakes, but unfortunately they were sold out on the day we were there.
I bought 2 cakes! When we got back to the Breakaway cruise ship, I cut one of the cakes and had it with vanilla ice cream. It was so good I went back and got 3 more for gifts.

I bought some rum cakes at a shop on the cruise ship dock. I thought they were Bermuda Rum Cakes. They were rum cakes, but were not made of Bermuda's Gosling Black Seal rum. So be careful to read the label carefully! The packages should be a gold box, with Bermuda Rum Cake Company in the center.
