Sangsters Rum Cream - contributed by Shermaine Anderson-Gayle
First Posted 1/10/2010
When Dr. Ian Sangster came to Jamaica in 1967, perhaps he himself never had the slightest idea that it was going to be a visit that would virtually change the beverage industry in Jamaica - and perhaps, the world.
Dr. Sangster came to Jamaica to lecture at the University of West Indies but later left to bring his dream to reality by creating one of - if not the best, rum creamliqueur, in 1974.
According to the reports, he craftily blended rum with dairy cream and added a unique mixture of selected Jamaican fruits and spices.
Sangster's Rum Cream was only formally introduced to the world in 1983 but has already surpassed many older varieties in performance and taste.
It is therefore no surprise that it has capped several coveted titles across the globe, including gold medal at the 2003 San Francisco World Spirits Competition and the Monde Quality Selection Gold Medal in 2004.
It has an alcohol content of 17% by volume and is available in 1 litre, 750 ml and 200 ml bottles.
There are also different flavours like banana, coffee, coconut and wild orange.
This versatile liqueur can be enjoyed on its own or mixed. We learned that it is also a hit in coffee, baking, and cocktails. You can even have it on your ice cream!
And yes, many stores, locally and overseas stock it up. I suggest you start by checking around online!
We have gotten a number or questions and comments on this website related to Jamaican rum creams but more specifically, Sangsters rum cream.
