Gela, is that a misprint or US $5.00 is correct

$5 US correct - on your way out of the country at the airport duty free One Barrel store.

&nbsp &nbsp Barbara,
I've looked and I've never seen that duty free store. I did duck into a duty free store in the departure lounge where they sold lots of stuff, not just One Barrel, and a liter was BZ$20. This was in February. I'll have to look harder the next time I'm coming through the airport.

By the way, One Barrel took a silver medal at the 2006 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Dan, as you walk into the departure lounge and turn left, it's probably the second or third store on your left. They have cardboard boxes that hold 2 bottles, or they can wrap one bottle with cardboard to protect it. It was $5US for 1 fifth I believe. There are larger bottles but I only had room for one bottle to bring back for a friend.

I plan to allow room next trip for much more laugh

Yeah, it's not the regular duty free store. It just sells One Barrel and Traveller's liquor products. And One barrel T shirts! I have found them to be closed fairly often though. So if you want to be sure to have One Barrel to go, perhaps don't wait to buy it there...

Re: one barrel rocks - 04/09/06 02:53 PM

no, 3 years, k. i said i FOUND it in '93 but bought in '03. but still....i don't really drink much (got other vices, as we all have to have them). for me rum is only drank in the summer...replaced by beer & vodka in cold weather.

I need some help, I must be drinking it wrong, I've tried it with cranberry juice & coke & it has'nt tasted that great to me, I really like the Carribean light.
What am I doing wrong with the One Barrel?
What's your favorite way to drink it???

Re: one barrel rocks - 04/11/06 03:45 PM

rum always good with (ALMOST)anything,

and, like Clover, I like & use of a lot of OJ, just not with One Barrel. For some reason, that one just does not work for me.

Re: one barrel rocks - 04/11/06 09:07 PM

With coke or rum punch is always good
Posted By: sweetjane

Re: one barrel rocks - 04/12/06 01:21 PM

pineapple juice with a splash of cranberry to cut the sweet. or like k man, straight up cold.

Re: one barrel rocks - 04/13/06 01:04 PM

How is it with water I useually drink segrams 7 and water so i was woundering if 1 barrel is good with water and ice

Re: one barrel rocks - 04/13/06 01:54 PM

Hey J Dog,
Yeah, the vanilla aftertaste that Clover described (I had been calling it "buttery".) Yummy.

My favorite is a Banana Colada with the One Barrell. I've ordered Cocoanut Cream from SimonB (Lagniappe Provisioning) to make these in the blender. You and Windyw are welcome to try them with us!

Re: one barrel rocks - 04/13/06 04:09 PM

Snorkelgirl,
Banana Colado, now that sounds good,I bet Pina Colada would be a good too!! Can't wait, by the time I get to the 2nd bottle I should be a One Barrel expert LOL!!
See ya in Paridise.
