Rum Cake

We’re making history delicious with our Fortress™ Rum cake. A dense, West Indies style cake with fruit, nuts and lots of our award-winning rum, Fortress Rum Cake captures the spirit of the 300-year New France rum trade.

The giving of rum cakes is an East Coast tradition dating back centuries that we’re proud to continue. We put Fortress Rum into the cake mix and then pour it over the cake when it comes out of the oven to create a moist, rich rum-filled cake that delivers the big flavours our rum is known for. And that full rum flavour only gets enhanced over time.

The perfect thank you gift or way to celebrate a special occasion with family and friends, giving and receiving Fortress Rum Cake is a tradition worth protecting. The cake also pairs beautifully with a glass of our Fortress Rum, the ideal toast for any occasion.

Fortress Rum cake is available at the Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Site and the Authentic Seacoast Distillery & Brewery as well as grocery stores and gift shops in the Maritimes.
