The Story on the back of the bottle:
On February 8, 1794, a convoy of ten merchant vessels carrying rum, cotton and wood ran aground off the coast of East End, Grand Cayman.
Born seamen, the brave people of these Islands risked life and limb to rescue the unfortunate crew and passengers from the stormy waters. As legend has it, included among those rescued was a Royal Prince, son to King George the Third of England.
As reward for their exceptional bravery and boldness, the King decreed that the people of the Cayman Islands would forever thereafter be free from war conscription and taxes.
