Kalik bottle

Kalik is a beer brand from the Bahamas. It is made by the Commonwealth Brewery in Nassau which also produces Heineken, Guinness and Vitamalt.[1] Currently there are four variations of Kalik beer: regular Kalik with 5% alcohol per volume, Kalik Lime (4%), Kalik Light (4%), and extra-strength Kalik Gold (7%).

Kalik was designed by Heineken International in 1988 based on studies of the Bahamian market. It seized market leadership from Beck's which had dominated the local market before.[2] According to the bottle label the name of Kalik is derived from sound of cowbells heard during the annual Bahamian festival of Junkanoo.
