Snug Harbor Old World Falernum had its beginnings in the West Indies at the end of the 17th century. The founder's grandfather had a bottle of Falernum in his bar but it was his grandmother who poured it over strawberries that really got his interest. Falernum is one of the original ingredients in Don the Beachcomber's Mai Tai. This Falernum is made with organic unrefined cane sugar and spices. It contains 3% rum alcohol as a preservative. Falernum can be used over fruit, in coffee, and makes for a fabulous topping over ice cream (See Recipes ways to use Snug Harbor Falernum). 


Snug Harbor Falernum is an incredibly versatile ingredient. The original Falernum is based on an old recipe presumably first concocted by a woman in Barbados in the late 1700’s. It was made of simple syrup, rum and spices.  It was used as aperitif one hour before dinner or added to rum drinks as an additional flavor. Mixed with heated water and lime juice it was given medicinally.  It can enhance and give life to a variety of foods and drinks - here are some of our favorites...
