cheapest alcohol

We are having a couples vacation at the Hilton in August. Can anyone advise where we would be able to secure the cheapest alcohol? We will have a rental car and can travel to grocery stores/liqour stores, etc.

The prices are basically all the same. You might save a very fews pennies in one place compared to the other. So go to a Supercentre grocery store and pick up what you want there. Don't waste your time driving around you'll spend more on fuel for the car than what you would save.

However at the duty free on arrival you'll find some very good deals, depending on what you want.

Buy what you can at the Duty Free in the airport, which is just after the baggage carousel. Liguor on Barbados is much more expensive than in the US. Rum is cheap in Barbados and wine isn't too bad, but everything else is very high.

When I'm in the islands, I like to drink local. I can get standard stuff at home. I'd rather enjoy the local brands, but I don't drink much so maybe I'm weird.

The best local Rums are Mountgay and Cockspur and they are very decently priced throughout the Island. You can buy them at Duty free prices in Bridgetown however you can't take them out of the stores as the alcohol is sent to the Airport for you to collect there before you travel home. We found the best prices in the large supermarkets e.g 175ml big bottles for aprox £10.As previously suggested you might want to pick some supplies up in the Duty free shop in the arrivals lounge. There is also a bureau de change in the Arrivals hall and both Bejan dollars and US dollars are accepted everywhere on the Island.
