The Bitter Truth Pimento Dram is made from Jamaican rum, sugarcane, and selected pimento/allspice berries (also called Jamaica pepper) and it is a highly aromatic liqueur to be used in cocktails.
English explorers coined the term allspice as the berry seemed to embody the flavors of cinnamon, pepper, nutmeg, and clove all at once. On the Caribbean island of Jamaica, this distinctive liqueur has been produced for generations.
