Region Info/ Origin
"The name Tobago is believed to be the etymological source of the English word 'tobacco'. Ironically, however, tobacco is not a key economic driver for the island today – the economies of scale offered by larger Chesapeake plantations in the eastern US diminished the allure of tobacco grown in the Caribbean colonies.
Arguably the most famous product made on the islands here is Angostura bitters. Dr Johann Siegert's amargo aromatico (aromatic bitters) was originally produced in the 1820s in Angostura, a small town on the Orinoco river in Venezuela. Production was moved to Trinidad due to the unstable political situation in Venezuela."
