QUESTION: I have been visiting Jamaica yearly since 1963 and feel in love with Sangster's World's End Wild Orange Liqueur.
Do you have any idea of where I might purchase a couple of cases of it, here in the states or have shipped in?

The search for your age-old liqueur took us on a long journey, which, although not being able to lead you to it, has opened the door for you to try others in its absence as it is no longer on the market.
The Sangster’s label was developed by Dr. Ian Sangster; a Scottish immigrant who came to Jamaica in 1967, where he made the region found five miles from Gordon Town the World’s End home of Sangster's liqueurs and flavored rums.
They age and blend their own fine rums plus a range of exotic, rum-based liqueurs using home-produced natural essences and extracts.
Many of these are used in recipes to bring a new twist to the dish and/or drink mix.
A hit in the early years of the Sangster’s liqueurs was the Sangster's World's End Wild Orange Liqueur. However, this line of liqueurs was discontinued when the company changed hands with J Wray and Nephew following the death of Dr. Sangster.
After the acquisition, J Wray & Nephew continued to bottle some of Dr. Sangster's blends under the Blue Mountain label. None of these flavored rums are currently being exported so you have another reason to visit Jamaica.
There is, however, a wide range of liqueurs and rum produced under different labels here in Jamaica which is equally as tantalizing and refreshing as other renowned labels across the world.
Sangster’s own Rum Cream is a hit with many individuals since its arrival on the market in 1983.
The Sangster’s line of liqueurs and selected rums under the J Wray and Nephew line can be purchased online at any of the following sites/links listed below:
