Had a long day? Need a tipple? Wishing you were on a beach with a cold glass of something with a tiny paper umbrella in it? Look no further than Jamaica, and some of the world’s best rums.

A while back, Forbes published their list of the 8 Best Rums You Need to Try Right Now, and Jamaican spirits featured prominently. It probably helped that the list was curated by Jamaican mixologist Rajay McLean, who works at the beautiful Jamaican Inn in Ocho Rios; without a doubt he is a little bit biased. Nevertheless, he had some great local brands to choose from. So stop by the liquor store on your way home today, pick yourself up a bottle, have a drink and think of me!

Not sure what to make? Try one of these classic rum cocktails.
