Sorrel, also known as hibiscus sabdariffa, is a species of flowering plant that is native to West Africa. It is widely cultivated in tropical and subtropical regions around the world, including in the Caribbean. In St. Lucia, sorrel is a popular ingredient in traditional holiday drinks, such as sorrel punch and sorrel rum. To make sorrel rum, the sorrel flowers are first harvested and then steeped in water to create a flavorful infusion. This infusion is then mixed with St. Lucia rum, which is made from molasses or sugarcane juice that is fermented and distilled. The sorrel infusion adds a tart and slightly fruity flavour to the rum, as well as a distinctive red colour. Sorrel rum is a popular beverage in St. Lucia, particularly during the Christmas season when it is traditionally consumed. It is also exported to other countries, where it is enjoyed by rum enthusiasts who appreciate its unique flavour and cultural significance.
