History:
Guavaberry is the legendary folk liqueur of Sint Maarten/St Martin. It was first made here centuries ago in private homes. People made what they needed for family and friends.
It became an integral part of local culture and tradition. Guavaberry is our national liqueur. It is a cherished symbol of the olden days. There are folk songs and stories
about it.

It is made from fine oak aged rum, cane sugar and wild Sint Maarten Guavaberries. The fruit is found high in the warm hills in the centre of the island. They are rare. They are
not at all like guavas. The aged liqueur has a woody, fruity, spicy, bitter-sweet flavour all of its own. The name 'Guavaberry' is of Caribbean Amer-Indian origin.

We read that 100 years ago the Guavaberry was used to make fresh juice, jams, tarts and cakes in the N.E. Caribbean and in Cuba and that in the late 1800s some Guavaberry wine
or rum was exported from the Danish Virgin Islands (now the USVI) to Denmark. Aside from these references, until recently, no one found a way to turn the fruit into commerce.
