Liquor Stores & Wine Merchants
Liquor carries heavy duty tags. For example, duty on hard liquors is CI$10.50 per litre. This means that 50% of the suggested retail price of CI$23.50 for a litre bottle of Appleton rum is duty. Duty on wine is CI$27 for a 12 bottle case; champagne 25% the total landed cost; over proof liquors CI$14.25 per litre; liqueurs CI$12 per litre and duty on beer CI$1.50 per litre.
