Flavors of the Turks and Caicos- FOTTAC

We visited the FOTTAC store today at Regent Village and found lots of great Turks items. Items available include hot sauces, Bambarra rums, rum cake, coffees, mugs, glasses, Turks Head & Bambarra tshirts and hats, various soaps and other items from the islands. We were able to sample Bambarra rums, run cake and various hot sauces. Many great items to try & purchase... great gifts and souvenirs. We highly recommend checking this store out.

We purchased Rum at FOTTAC and then noticed the price was $2 cheaper per bottle at the airport store. FOTTAC wrapped it nicely in bubble wrap for us though - not sure if they do that at the airport.

Just remember if you purchase it at the airport and carry it on with you and have a connecting flight in the U.S. you need to go through customs and go through airport security all over again. You will NOT be able to carry it on your second flight. You need to put it in your checked luggage. We saw someone realizing this the hard way when we returned from our trip.

Is the store you can purchase rum at before you have to check your baggage or is it after bc I would love to buy some and just stick it in my future checked baggage.

Citychick10- the duty free store is after the bc at the PLS airport so you only have your carry on bags with you at that point

Oh Ok..Thanks. So I guess I will buy it before I get to the airport then and pack it. Are the prices for Liquor pretty much the same everywhere? I'd like to get the best bargain :)

They had Turks Head T-shirts? Aw, man! I missed out, forgot to visit FOTTAC on our trip in April, thought I'd done OK by getting my rum and rum cake at the airport duty-free.
