    Default Cost of Gin on Island?

    Will be there a month; need G&T!
    Should I bring my Gin, or buy it locally?
    (Couldn't search for Gin; word is too short...)
    Thanks!

    Bonaire has its own gin. Sponsor the local community.

    There is a government run liquor store across the road from Donna and Georgio's . They have the best prices for Gin that I have found on the island. Their hours are kind of tricky being closed for a long lunch hour from 12:30 -2:00. The grocery store next to the Warehouse also has a big assortment of gin. Think Famoso . The tax is all included in the price of the liquor when you see the shelf price.

    Prices, compared to duty-free flying in?

    May I suggest you only bring what you can’t buy on Bonaire?
    Businesses will appreciate your support

    I understand your concern.
    I'm sorry you do not have the info that will let me make my decision in favor of purchasing locally.

    "Best Cellars" across from Van Den Tweel supermarket & "Bottles" across from Formoso on Kaya Industria have a great upscale selection of wines liquors. European brands are priced better on Bonaire then in the US, but US brands are a bit more here. ie: a liter of Stoli vodka is $17 but a liter of Titos vodka is $24 and a liter of Bullet bourbon is $35. I don't drink gin myself but I saw Hendrick's and Bombay in Best Cellars the other day.

    Perfect. Price comparison with my local store lets Bonaire win hands down.
    Thank you.
