Chairman's Reserve, 'The Forgotten Casks' Rum

Chairmans Reserve The Forgotten Casks Rum St Lucia Distillers
  • Blended rum produced by St. Lucia Distillers, St. Lucia’s last remaining distillery, located in Roseau
  • Made from 100% molasses
  • Open-fermented for 36 hours in concrete tanks using proprietary yeast and water from the Roseau River
  • Distilled on a combination of Coffey column and copper pot stills
  • The original Chairman’s Reserve recipe is matured an additional three years after blending for a total age of 8–11 years in ex-bourbon barrels
  • Proofed with rainwater treated at the distillery’s reverse osmosis plant
  • A wonderfully intense nose of sweet raisins and sultanas with tobacco and vanilla lead to an expressive palate of sweet, honeyed fruit and spices yielding a delightfully complex rum
  • 40% ABV

On May 2, 2007, St. Lucia Distillers was struck by a major fire; most of the distillery was spared but much of their storage space for aging casks was lost. In the melee that followed, their cellar master, Cyril Mangal, was forced to find space for aging casks in the most unusual places. Some of these were tucked away and subsequently forgotten about, only to be rediscovered and then offered as a limited release. While those unique, surviving barrels have long since been bottled, the blend was so uniquely delicious that it’s been recreated and honored with Chairman’s Reserve: The Forgotten Casks.
