Jamaican Rum Cream - Can I ship it back home to the US?

Jamaican Rum Cream - Can I ship it back home to the US?

Another Jamaican rum cream question!

I tell you, outside of Blue Mountain Coffee, it must be the most popular Jamaican product from Jamaican, certainly for our visitors to the island.

Anyway, here is the question...


We are booked to come to Jamaica for the second time at the beginning of April! Stayed in Montego Bay last time - this time Negril! I love your Rum Cream! While I am there, can I purchase a case and have it sent to my home in the USA?

RESPONSE: by Wellesley

Hey Anon (I didn't get your name),

But thanks for asking! And congratulations on your second visit!

Want some suggestions of places to go, check my now popular attractions directory.

Anyway, back to your question.

If you are thinking about shipping it via back while you are here, the answer, unfortunately is no, certainly not at this time.

I also made contact with one of the popular international courier services here and they confirmed same.

They are not allowed to send rum cream nor alchoholic products to the US.
There is a reason for that too. I outlined that in a response post a few weeks ago, you can read that article here.

The best option, if not sending with someone, is to bring it yourself when you are leaving.
I think the standard case is 12 bottles, althogh they have smaller sizes.

They didn't state a limit on the amount, but I suspect that a 'reasonable about' for personal consumption will be allowed, although I read in forum sometime ago, where a gentleman said he brought an extra suitcase just for Jamaican rum cream! :-)

So my suggestion, just wait until you are leaving and take some then my friend. If you have company, even better, have them take a few for you as well :-)

By the way, I'v answered some other related questions on Jamaican rum creams, including where to purchase rum cream online, and when rum cream goes bad, as well as some interesting facts on the history of rum cream in Jamaica, be sure to click the link to each and read more.

And have you tried any of our Jamaaican rum cakes?, I think you'll want to take back a few of that too!
