We develop, produce and market “best in class” Caribbean style liqueurs for the world market.
Our founder, Lars G.O. Söderström, began to unearth the treasure of Tobago Gold in 2004, when he acquired “La Caurita”, a 400 acre traditional Cocoa Estate in Trinidad and Tobago. During the years to come Lars invested in and developed “La Caurita”, and as his love for Caribbean chocolate grew stronger, he also learnt to master the art of chocolate making “from bean to bar”, from world leading chocolate experts.
In 2019, Lars started experimenting with combining two of his favourite flavours, Caribbean rum and cocoa, in order to make the perfect alcoholic beverage to suit both his sweet tooth and his love for rum. A year later, after numerous tests, and trials in his kitchen, he and his team successfully created the masterful blend now known as “Tobago Gold”, by using the finest selection of cocoa, spices and rum that the Caribbean has to offer. And the rest is history.
The brand Tobago Gold was founded in 2020 and our small, but dedicated team, is passionate about producing the Tobago Gold Chocolate Rum Cream. A treasure distinctive to the Caribbean, made with love by us – to share with the rest of the world.
We ensure that all our decisions align with the preservation and protection of the environment.
