Chairman's Reserve '1931' Rum, St. Lucia Distillers
Sugarcane arrived in St Lucia in the 18th Century, and its molasses byproduct continued the growth of the Caribbean’s thriving rum trade. By the 1950s, however, most Caribbean rum-producing islands had slowed their pace, and St Lucia was no exception—only two producers remained, Dennery & Roseau, and soon the two joined forces under the Barnard family banner of the St Lucia Distillers Group. The operating distillery now remains in Roseau. Featuring extensive environmental initiatives, Chairman’s Reserve distills outstanding rums in a St Lucia style using molasses sourced from Guyana, after a 24-30 hour closed fermentation period.

A seamless blend of Coffey and pot still rums aged from 6 to 11 years in Bourbon and Port casks, the Chairman’s Reserve Limited Edition 1931 is a tribute to the philosophy and craft established at the original Dennery distillery that eventually became part of St. Lucia Distillers. The majority of the blend comes from traditional molasses rum, while a bright, grassy character is contributed by distillate from fresh sugarcane grown in the fields adjacent to the distillery. Notes of honeyed raisins, oak, and crème caramel are followed by hints of leather, tobacco, and coffee bean.
