Where to get Belizean rums and 'craboo' liquor in NY?

New Havener | Mar 23, 2003 11:58 AM

My parents brought me back a revelatory (hyperbole as usual, but it seems justified here) rum from their recent vacation in Belize - 'Belize Travellers 1 Barrel'. It's delicious, with a warm, subtle, toasted-marshmallow-and-vanilla flavor I've never tasted before. To make the local drink they had while in Belize, you need the rum, pineapple juice and liquor (or is it a liqueur?) made from a citrusy central american fruit called 'craboo'. Unfortunately, while my folks brought back a few bottles of rum, they only have one bottle of the craboo liqueur, so I have been forced to make awkward substitutions. Just about any drink you make with this rum tastes good, but I want to get as close as i can to the real thing.

Does anyone know an importer that specializes in South and Central American and/or Caribbean spirits?
