Topper’s Rhum, a truly locally made product, is a world-class premium rhum that is handmade, bottled, and packaged with precision in St. Maarten. Topper’s Rhum uses only all natural premium ingredients and no preservatives. This family owned and operated business is committed to producing the world’s best tasting rhum using the highest standards of quality. We are re-inventing rhum by continually innovating and delivering unique products to our customers worldwide. The company is environmentally conscientious and well known for our signature reusable swing-top bottles. This official St. Maarten rhum is the only spirit distilled and exported from St. Maarten. Topper’s Rhum has been awarded 24 medals given by the most prominent rum tasting contests in the world and recently won USA Today’s 10best Caribbean rum distillery.
Topper and his wife enjoyed making flavored rhums for their friends at home so when they opened their landmark restaurant in St. Maarten, they began giving complimentary after dinner drinks to their restaurant’s guests, who fell in love with it. They quickly went from fulfilling individual requests to producing a supply for local restaurants and stores.
In 2008 they commercialized the brand, which gained a lot of attention. In 2012 they moved from their home kitchen to a 6,000 sq. ft. facility with the help from their partners and good friends Mike and Thelma King, who are no longer with us. Their vision was to share their products throughout the world. Mike’s brother Todd King and his nephew Colden King, have since taken on Mike’s prior roles.
The King Foundation, which was created in 2012 in Mike and Thelma’s honor, was established to benefit those in need and a portion of all proceeds goes towards this effort.
When you taste Topper’s Rhum, we hope that you’ll become a special part of our family, one that is dedicated to celebrating the lives of friends and family.
