ST. LUCIA DISTILLERS
1931 - FIRST EDITION
'CELEBRATING MORE THAN 80 YEARS OF ST. LUCIA RUM MAKING'
St. Lucia Distillers celebrates the inauguration of a new distillery in February 1931 in the Mayouya Valley, near Dennery, in Saint Lucia. The distillery was founded by Denis Barnard and produced rum until 1972 when St. Lucia Distillers was formed out of the merging of the Dennery distillery and the Roseau Distillery. This history is represented with line drawings 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 wider rum world.
1931 is a super premium rum brand that is made from a blend of Coffey and copper pot distillates. It is matured in seven American white oak casks and two port casks, the rum is then blended and left to marry in American oak for a further three months.
Nose: Full nose of sweet honeyed fruit with hints of chocolate and tobacco.
Palate: Dry at first, then opens up to display great depth and complexity. Concentrated with steeped raisin, vanilla, and a hint of roasted nuts.
