When our cruise ship docked in St. Martin we walked several blocks uphill to find this shop, only to find it was closed for renovations, which their website did not indicate. I was very disappointed.

This rum was really good. The Guavaberry mixed with pineapple juice tastes great. I ended bringing back several bottles. If your worried about weighing down your luggage they do have hand painted plastic bottles that are easy to pack.

What a great way to taste all the flavor of Ma DouDou rums. The bottles are hand painted too...great souvenirs. We fill ours with different liquids at home.,.olive oil, syrup, veggie oil. Think of St. Martin every time we use them over and over.

The rum is delicious! My favorite was the banana vanilla, and the passion fruit. Hand crafted and aged to perfection. Sold in hand painted bottles, plastic the better to transport back home. Don't miss a tasting at their Old Street location.

Everyone goes to the Guavaberry Emporium, because they've got the big advertising budget and look less fly-by-night, but in this particular case, that is really what you want - flavored rums that taste like they were made by a *person*, not by a *company*. The...More

We went to St. Maarten again and was sure to go to Ma Doudou again! The shop was as charming as we remembered and we left with more extracts and their wonderful flavors. We recommend this shop!!

After reading reviews, I just had to check out this place. The Banana Vanilla rum tastes like candy, had to buy a big bottle. The woman even sold me on a bottle of vanilla extract and a jar of coco caramel jam....deelish!!!

Nice small shop full of flavours. We focused their Punch au Rhums, thought they have really interesting other products, too. Lady on duty was really generous on tasting and eagerly told about their products. Well, not that cheap but really interesting and worth carrying 5000miles...More

The bottles vary in size from small airplane type to large 750 ml bottles. If you're on a budget the hip flask size are your best bet, and I think they were three for $30 or so.
