St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram

  • Traditional Jamaican liqueur critical to tropical drinks and cuisine
  • Pot-still rum base; notes of clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, pepper
  • Use in rum punches; famous with bourbon in the Lion's Tail
  • Adds sweet, warming spice notes to stirred drinks
  • Splash in coffee; use in a jerk chicken marinade

Allspice is a critical element of tropical drinks and cuisine. The berry, called “pimento” in Jamaica, gets its modern name from its flavors of clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, and pepper. St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram is a traditional preparation made with smoky Jamaican pot-still rum. Famous with bourbon in the Lion’s Tail. Use Allspice Dram in rum punches, as the base note of numerous tropical drinks, in mulled wine or the seasoning for sangria. Great with grapefruit or pineapple juice drinks and in coffee.

While in Jamaican homes allspice dram usually lives in the kitchen as a flavoring, the pioneers of tiki drinks in the 1940s immediately seized on its ability to add spice and dryness to drinks with many juices and syrups. Today, St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram is one of the most versatile ingredients in the modern cocktail bar. It adds sweet, warming spice notes to stirred drinks, without excess sugar or bitterness. In drinks that require extra sweetness for texture (cream, egg, coffee or toddy-style drinks), St. Elizabeth adds an important drying aromatic that doesn’t affect the drink’s texture. It also shines in the kitchen, as an ingredient in a meat marinade (it makes for an easy jerk chicken with superb caramelization), a finishing spice for a curry, or splashed into whipped cream for a dessert.

About Rum/Rum Liqueurs

Haus Alpenz’s suite of sugarcane distillates (Scarlet Ibis, Smith & Cross, and Batavia-Arrack van Oosten) represents a unique approach to the world of rum. All of these spirits represent the most flavorful distillates we can find from traditional rum-producing countries (Trinidad, Jamaica and Indonesia, respectively). They are all bottled at modest age (if aged at all) and elevated proof, are unchillfiltered, and have no added sugar. These principles lead to rums that are both expressive and versatile. Additionally, rum is the basis of exotically flavored liqueurs, such as allspice dram, falernum and Swedish punsch, that are essential to tropical and tiki drinks as well as a variety of classic cocktails.
