Their website is a little flaky. Email them directly and tell them you want to buy some.



I emailed them a couple of years ago and they responded that they were out of stock and wouldn't be selling it anymore.

Damn! I just got back from Jamaica Monday. I should have taken orders for Pimento liqueur - the stuff was cheap too $12.00. I'm kicking myself too because Cuban rum was abundant as well - I was afraid I'd get busted by customs and get the stuff taken away but of course they didn't even give my wife and I a second glance! I could have smuggled Cuban rum, Cuban cigars, not to mention other illegal items if I wanted to! All I wanted was a bottle of that Cuban white rum...one damn bottle!! Did pick up some Appleton Reserve and Wray & Nephew overproof rum (anyone know what I use that in??)...

Next time consult with Tiki Central first! You can buy Appleton Reserve and Wray and Nephew overproof in the U.S. (well, in California anyway). You got some good rum - the Reserve is great straight and the overproof is a fine substitute for 151 (or if you want an extra kick in any drink!).

Does anyone know the penalty for bringing in Cuban rum or cigars? I brought back several bottles through Tijuana recently. I would have second thoughts doing it again if I knew I may be fined or arrested! I assumed they would only confiscate it if I was caught (perhaps I'm naive).

I, too bought a bottle of pimento from them. There was a month or more lag time from when I ordered until it was delivered. They required a faxed copy of my drivers license. When it arrived, the package had an Oregon return address hand-written on it. Very interesting. Pimento is very tasty stuff. Thick and sweet, it has complex flavors with good spice. It's highly regarded for its "digestif" qualities. Try "Jasper's Jamaican" from the Grog Log. I believe the recipe calls for pimento, lime juice, sugar, and rum. Very nice! If you can get it, enjoy! Good luck to all.

I'm so jealous! I've been trying to order from them for years and it's never been available when I inquired. I guess you have to go on their web site at the right time. Right now it's not available. aquarj said he ordered from them once and never got a bottle - did you ever get one Randy?

I know we get the Appleton Reserve here in Maryland but at $28 a bottle I don't buy it too often. Never seen Wray and Nephew here!Also the Meyers's is the deal of the week - giant one litre bottle for $10.00!

It looks like I am a week away until I get my Wray & Nephews Pimento. I had a friend buy me a couple of bottles in Jamaica last week "they were only $10 each". I'll give a repost upon tasing!

Cheers,

KT

I did receive my pimento! Two bottles, does any one have a great recipe? I know that there are a couple in the Grog log/Intoxica, but just thought that I would reach out for any experienced mixologists advise. BK, what do you know?

Cheers,

KT

I know BK made his own. As for bringing stuff back from Cuba, it's no problem in amounts for personal use. 10 cigars would be okay, a few boxes, no.

Please refer to Gunther Anderson's HomePage. Gunther appears to be a bit of a "Folk Music Singin' Hippy" kind of guy. He does, however, have a significant list of recipes of liqueurs that can be made at home. Each and every one that I have tried, so far, gave absolutely Perfect results.
I have yet to try the Pimento Liqueur but the recipe looks right! I'd suggest listening to Splitsville's cover of "I'll Never Fall in Love Again" while mixing this one up. That's just me, though.

Here it is:

Jasper's Jamaican is good! Truly a nice way to get started with my Pimento. I'll try something else tomorrow and let you know how it goes.

Cheers,

KT

Another pimento liqueur recipe that differs from the gunther version posted here as far as can tell.

>>Edit: Scratch the above statement...same as Gunther recipe upon closer inspection. Apologies<<

Also lot's of other unique concoctions (including marijuana infusion instructions).

Nice coupla pages, lots of links to Gunther.

Does anybody else have a recipe for this stuff, other than the Gunther one listed above?

I've tried several, with and without Cinnamon, some with lime, and some with molasses. Others use Brown sugar to make the syrup instead of white. But I figured that I can't be the only one experimenting with this out there...

I do have one that I particulary like, though I can't vouch for it's athuencity vs. the real stuff:

1/4 c. Crushed (Not Ground) Dried Allspice Berries
2-3 Cracked cinnamon Sticks
Zest from 1 Lime
2 c. Meyer’s Dark Jamaican Rum
1/2 c. High Proof Rum (I used Bacardi 151...)

I let this steep for 5 days Then filtered it and added it to a sugar syrup which I made by boilng together for 10 minutes:

3 c. Water
1 lb. Brown sugar
1/4 c. Molasses

I bottled it and let it set about a week. Pretty tasty all by itself...and I'm looking forward to test-driving it in a mixed drink very soon.
