Rum & Smokes

What is the cost of a bottle of Rum in Antigua?

A 40 oz bottle of rum in Canada is $52.

I forget the price in duty free.

A 20 pk of smokes in Canada varies according to the brand from $6.50 -$8.50.

In Barbados, it was cheaper to purchase Rum & smokes on the Island than from home or duty free.

Is it the same in Antigua?

Look forward to some good advise.

Much cheaper on island.

A 750 ml bottle of English Harbour five year old is around $EC40 (just under $US15) in the supermarket.

20 cigarettes are $EC7 (less than $US3).

Both are slightly cheaper duty free, but it's more of a hassle to go into town to get them.

Holster - your best bet at Jolly is the Epicurean supermarket for rum (and beer etc). They don't always have a good range of cigarettes though - there are usually more brands available over at the pharmacy (just across the road at the beginning of the commercial centre) or at Quin Farara Liquor Store (which unfortunately isn't duty free).
