St Maarten Guavaberry Carnival Sale

Everything you need for a Caribbean BBQ now with 15% discount when ordering online!

St Maarten's Carnival started on April 16, and will run through May 4, 2015. On the island that means days and nights filled with music, dancing, guavaberry cocktails and delicious BBQ meals.



If you can't personally be apart of the islands Carnival, you can still enjoy the cultural cuisine, and save during the Carnival dates.  

The two nation island of Dutch St Maarten and French St Martin both consider guavaberry a traditional drink - especially during island celebrations and holidays. 



The liquor is made from generations old recipes consisting of aged rum, brown sugar and wild guavaberries. If you're not familiar with guavaberries, the taste is a combination of bitter, tart and sweet. The most popular use of the fruit is rum, however the berries are also made into jams, tarts and cakes, juices, and breads. 

When ripe the berries can either be black or orange in color - both taste about the same. This is truly an exotic island kind of fruit as there is no set season for the berries - much like "island time" - it will happen, but at no specific time or schedule. 

The two-island nation is not the only island with a fondness for Guavaberry. For centuries people in the Caribbean have used guavaberry to make jams, juice, tarts and cakes. Guavaberry is a traditional holiday drink on several Caribbean islands including Martinique, Guadeloupe, Dominican Republic, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
