TypeLiqueurs, herbal or spice-flavored
Also known as
Pimiento Dram, Pimento Liqueur
Generic for rum-based spicy pimiento berry-flavored liqueur of the Caribbean. The pimento or pimiento is the berry from which the spice allspice is derived. English explorers coined the term allspice because the berry seemed to encapsulate the flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove all at once. How this might relate to the flavorless, red, wadded-up thing stuffed in some cocktail olives, we would be hard-put to explain. The only currently produced brand appears to be Wray & Nephew Pimento Liqueur. Unfortunately, importation and marketing of this product ceased in the United States in the 1980s. Highly recommended.
