ST. LUCIA DISTILLERS
1931 - FIFTH EDITION
'CELEBRATING 84 YEARS OF ST. LUCIA RUM MAKING'
Saint Lucia Distillers celebrates the inauguration of a new distillery in February 1931 in the Mabouya Valley, near Dennery, in St. Lucia. The distillery was founded by Denis Barnard and produced rum until 1982 when St. Lucia Distilleries was formed out of the merging of the Dennery Distillery and the Roseau Distillery. This history with line drawings is represented on the label and outer box of the brand. Every year the label colour changes and the passing of every year is reflected in the updating of the labelling, closure coin, bar code and outer packaging.
Each bottle is individually numbered. It is hoped the brand will become a collectors' item for connoisseurs of rum and set a benchmark for rums in the Caribbean and wide rum world.
1931 5th Edition, celebrating 85 years of St. Lucia rum making, is a super premium rum brand that is made from a blend of casks containing distillates from the column still, all around 9 - 10 years old, including a small percentage from port casks; pot still rums aged in Bourbon caks; with the remaining being sugar cane rum, also aged in bourbon oak.
Nose: Sweet raisins with notes of oak, leather and tobacco.
Palate: Rich sultana-like fruit with hints of coffee, leather and toasty oak. A long dry finish with well integrated oak, hint of grassy sugar cane adding complexity.
