ST. LUCIA DISTILLERS
1931 - SIXTH EDITION
'CELEBRATING MORE THAN 85 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 6th Edition is a blend of ex-Bourbon casks containing distillates from the column still ranging from 7 to 11 years old, and pot still rums with the same range of age; a final 10% is a sugar cane rum, distilled in the John Dore pot still.
Nose: A rich raisin fruit on the nose, with hints of orange peel and tropical spice, honeyed bananas and a touch of crème brulée.
Palate: The back palate is dry with a funky pot still flavour and a hint of grassiness from the sugar cane distillate. A beautifully balanced rum!
