The Caribbean is known first and foremost for its stunningly beautiful beaches, but coming in a close second is rum. Many islands throughout the region distill their own local varieties, and St. Kitts and Nevis is no exception. Bring home some Brinley Gold rum, made on St. Kitts in a family-run operation. Rather than the traditional white or aged rums you might find in the Caribbean, the Brinley family makes rums infused with tropical flavors like vanilla, coffee, mango and coconut. Visitors are allowed to bring home one-and-a-half liters of spirits duty-free, so why not take home a bottle of each flavor?
If rum isn’t your thing, pick up some Nevis honey — pure and natural, it’s made by bees that buzz between the island’s mango and wild tamarind trees, making for a sweet and distinctive tasting honey. Pick some up at the Beehouse in Gingerland. Nevis is also known for its pottery, made at Newcastle Pottery Center from the island’s iconic red clay and fired outdoors over coconut shells.
