My earliest recollection of Bay Rum was at about the age of about eight. I spent many happy summers in the Virgin Islands. After a long day on the island of St. John, a shower at the end of the day was never appreciated more than during my frequent visits to the Knight family’s home, enjoying their gracious hospitality. I was somewhat oblivious to the reality of a shortage of water one finds on an island, growing up, as I did, in a New York suburb where hot and cold running water was just another certainty of life. After a refreshing shower, mosquitoes, sunburn, and scratches from running amuck through the island’s overgrown bush seemed a lot less annoying because Bay Rum was part of the Knight family remedy always at the ready.
As I remember, the first bottles of this life-saving liquid were purchased at one of the local bars in Cruz Bay – in a reused Heineken beer bottle, with a cork placed in it to protect the vital concoction. And this, for some reason, is the only container for Bay Rum I remember until perhaps the late 60’s, when I recall buying St. John’s Bay Rum in its famous palm weave bottle. Tourists would stock up on this well-known elixir as they disembarked from their cruise ships to relieve St. Thomas’ shops of their Duty-Free treasure. For fifty years, I have used Bay Rum every day and I can’t imagine a morning shave without it.
Years after my boyhood visits with the Knights, I purchased a piece of property, near the summit on Bordeaux Mountain close to Coral Bay, from the Marsh family who owned extensive land in the subdivision known as Estate Carolina. To my surprise, decades later, while researching Bay Rum, I would be reminded that one of the Marsh family’s business endeavors was distilling the bay oil from trees on and around Bordeaux. My life-long affair with Bay Rum now has me touting its many virtues to readers of this website.
Our refreshing Bay Rum splash is just the thing to soothe and cool your face after shaving. With its aromatic scent, it keeps you feeling good throughout the day. It also boasts astringent properties that helps relieve any small scratches or insect bites.
The West Indian Bay Tree is the source for Bay Essential Oil (pimenta racemosa). This is oil that, after distillation, has many uses in cottage industries that are too many to list. The use most often cited is its major contribution in the making of Bay Rum.
Bay Rum was sold in apothecary shops and stores such as R. H. Macy’s, beginning in the closing days of the 19th century. It was a staple on the islands of the Caribbean where the ills of humid weather and insect bites were figuratively wiped away with one splash to the body. All this with a masculine scent, sans the often over bearing strength of many colognes on the market today.
Our Bay Oil used for our Bay Rum, is sourced from the island of Dominica in the Caribbean. Arguably, it is considered one of the best bay oils still crafted in the old-fashioned way. There is no synthetic fragrance used here to produce our premium pure bay oil. Beginning in the 1950’s, Bay Rum was often sold in attractive glass bottles, catering to the burgeoning tourist trade, in gift stores. But the indigenous islanders picked up their supply of Bay Rum, often bottled in reclaimed beer bottles, (usually Heineken), which were scooped up from the Saturday evening trash bins, outside the local bars and restaurants, by island entrepreneurs.
