Chairman’s Reserve 1931 6th Edition Saint Lucia Rum
A unique and hedonistic rum inspired by St. Lucia Distillers' founder
The Barnard family first settled in Saint Lucia in the 1820's and established their distillery in the 1930's, by making rum from molasses produced by the islands massive sugar plantations. Due to the rise of European sugar beet, the local sugar industry was forced into extinction. This led to negative effects on the island's growing rum trade. With few choices remaining, the last two distilleries formed a joint venture and consolidated their operations to the picturesque Roseau Valley, creating what is known today as St. Lucia Distillers. With the history behind them, Laurie Barnard took it upon himself to restore St. Lucia's rum providence and created Chairman's Reserve, which has re-established the prestige of St. Lucia's rum culture.
Chairman’s Reserve Limited Edition 1931 is a tribute to the rum philosophy and craft established by our founder, Denis Barnard, when he established his distillery in 1931, which has become today one of Saint Lucia’s most cherished treasures, St. Lucia Distillers.
Vibrant medium gold in color with a subtle bronze hue, the character of the rum is highlighted by the expressive aromas of honied raisins and vibrant toasty oak notes followed by hints of leather, spice and tobacco. A well-balanced mid-palate provides structure around flavours of rich sultana fruit with hints of crème caramel and buttery oak. At first a sweet raisin fruit, trailed by dry and tannic flavors from the oak barrels. A hint of grassy aromatic sweetness from the sugarcane distillate gives a unique, hedonistic but balanced element to finish of the rum.
