Lovely Local Liqueurs

St. Nicholas Abbey has added yet another star product to their distinguished portfolio of handcrafted rums and gourmet treats. Made with an infusion of St. Nicholas Abbey’s award winning rums, these fine handcrafted liqueurs are now available at the Abbey in five lip-smacking, tropical flavours, all beautifully packaged, perfect for gift giving. Choose from Bajan Lemoncello, Sorrel Flirt, Monkey Business - made with perfectly ripened bananas, Pure Passion - made with the tangy pulp of passion fruit and Wildcat, a coffee liqueur with accents of locally roasted beans.

The Warren family are keeping busy up at the Abbey, look out for their St. Nicholas Abbey Gin in 2020, distilled and bottled at the Abbey.

Wait, VODKA from Barbados?

Founder and master distiller, Raymond Thompson is 100% Bajan (much like his vodka). In true Bajan fashion, he unearthed this breakthrough idea while liming: as a nation we’re growing more sweet potatoes than we can eat ... the next day he embarked on a journey to bring you Barbados’ first, aptly named vodka: Katspraddle.

Bajan Brew

Devoted fans of top-quality beer should make a point of finding and sampling the fabulous range of 8 varieties of hand-crafted Barbadian ales produced locally by The Brewhouse, all of which carry island-inspired names like Long Beach Wheat Ale, Silver Sands Pale Ale, Round Rock IPA and so on. As soon as you hear owner/brewer Charles McKenzie waxing lyrical about only using the finest ingredients, making one small batch at a time, and ‘educating the public about what a proper pint should taste like’, you know this is no ordinary beer. As Charles likes to say, ‘I love beer and I want you to love beer too!’ Ask for The Brewhouse Ales at select bars, restaurants and shops around the island.
