Independence Cookbook

THURSDAY, JULY 28, 2022 6 jamaica AT KINGSTON, JAMAICA: Cheers to Fi Wi Culture! AUGUST 6, 2022 marks a tremendous milestone for the Caribbean’s largest English-speaking island. Jamaica, celebrating 60 years of independence, continues to transcend borders to register lasting global impact through the talents and personality of its people and its culture. These 4,240 square miles span of country continues to dominate and showcase its global relevance through its many sporting, musical and cultural triumphs. A few of our most prominent talents, Louise Bennett-Coverley, Edna Manley, and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce dominated their fields and wrote themselves and Jamaica into the history books. Bob Marley, Marcus Garvey and Usain Bolt have elevated the palette for excellence globally, adding to the legacy of the small island nation washed by the Caribbean Sea. With a cadre of excellence to honour, celebrations are a pillar of our infectious spirit and contribute in part to what makes us uniquely Jamaican. On the days we celebrate, as we often have reason to do, the spirit of choice is usually Wray & Nephew White Overproof Rum. Duly dubbed the “The Official Spirit of Jamaica 60”, this globally trending rum captures the indomitable spirit of Jamaicans. Used in food dishes, spiritual and traditional practices, significant celebrations, and other innovative ways only Jamaicans could engineer, the brand is a marked cultural staple for Jamaicans both locally and in the diaspora. Engrained in the fabric of Jamaica’s cultureWray & Nephew White Overproof Rum pays tribute to the bold and vibrant heritage that distinguishes a nation and holds great allure globally.
