Saint Lucia - LET HER INSPIRE YOU…
The Barnard family first settled in St. Lucia in the 1930’s and established their distillery by making rum from the molasses produced by the island’s massive sugar plantations. Due to the rise of the European sugar beet, the local sugar industry was forced into extinction. This lead 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 this history behind him, 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 White Rum is a blend of three to four year old rums distilled in a combination of copper pot stills and a Coffey still and has been aged in American white oak casks. This white rum delivers refreshing citrus notes, complexity, and a balance creating the perfect foundation for cocktails and other mixed drinks.
Clear translucent colour. Clean, refreshing citrus nose with hints of sweet raisin and boiled sweets. On the palate it is dry at first then sent raisin with hints of cream, zesty citrus lime and a long balanced finish.
