Jamaican Alcoholic Drinks

Jamaica has a wealth of alcoholic temptations, from locally produced beer and rums to fine liqueurs. Red Stripe beer, a lager, is the top selling beer on the island and is sometimes nicknamed "the policeman" in reference to its red stripe similar to that on a policeman's uniform. The locally made Dragon Stout is found in many local bars; Guiness is also a local favorite.

With its long history as a sugar producing island, it's no wonder that Jamaica has such an excellent choice of locally made rums. Tops include Appleton's, Myers, and Sangster's. Sangster's also produces Tia Maria, a liqueur made of coffee and rum,
