THE BITTER TRUTH PIMENTO DRAM is based on selected pimento or allspice (also called Jamaica pepper) and the finest Jamaican rum. English explorers coined the term allspice because the dried berry seemed to embody the flavours of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove all at once. On the Caribbean island of Jamaica, this distinctive aromatic liqueur has been produced for generations by macerating allspice in rum. It works well in traditional hot or cold punches and of course, Tiki drinks.
The Bitter Truth Pimento Dram is sweet, spicy and very intense. Clove initially presents itself in the foreground, fading into the pure flavours of cinnamon, nutmeg and pepper which linger on the tongue.
