We have a lot of pride in our local rums.
Here, on the island of Jamaica, the rum flows freely. First distilled on the sugarcane plantations of the Caribbean in the 17th century, rum is part of Jamaica’s history, and something we have a lot of pride in. Made from molasses and sugarcane juice, and left in oak barrels to mature, the rum can have many variations. From light and gold rum used in cocktails, to dark, spiced and premium rum, enjoyed neat.
Here is a simple, yet refreshing light rum cocktail recipe to get you in the spirit of All Right.
1 1/2 oz light rum
3/4 oz lime juice
1/4 oz sugar syrup
- Pour the light rum, lime juice and sugar syrup into a cocktail shaker with ice cubes.
- Shake well.
- Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
We love our beer just as much as our rum. Our famous Red Stripe beer is a pale larger, with 4.7% alcohol. First brewed in 1938 from a recipe developed by Paul H Cottler and Bill Martindale, it’s now made in the Kingston brewery, and ordered by the caseload. Also look out for Red Stripe Light, Dragon Stout and Malta, our non-alcoholic beer.
