Screech Ins! A Great Tradition!

Tis The Rum Me Son!!

Screech is dark Jamaican rum, imported, bottled and consumed in Newfoundland for the past couple of centuries. At that time, Newfoundland and Jamaica had a special trade relationship. Salt fish went south and subsequently became the national dish for Jamaicans. Rum came north and subsequently became the traditional drink for Newfoundlanders. Early fishermen drank it without thinking about the alcohol content and they didn’t tinker with the alcohol itself either. The taste remained strong and unchanged. Even when the government eventually moved in, the bottles remained unlabeled and the rum untouched. It even stayed nameless until around WW2 when American servicemen spent some time in Newfoundland. As the story goes, one of them took a shot of the rum and immediately after doing so, belted out a distressful sound. So distressful that fellow patrons ran over to find out what the commotion was all about and asked “what the cripes was that ungodly screech?” A Newfoundlander in the room responded, “the screech? ‘Tis the rum, me son.” The name stuck and the legend began.
