Chairman's White Rum, St. Lucia Distillers
Sugarcane first arrived in St Lucia in the 1700s, with the thriving rum trade close on its heels. By the 1950s, however, most Caribbean rum producing islands had slowed their pace, and St Lucia was no exception. The last operating distillery now remains in Roseau, uniting the island’s rums under one banner: St Lucia Distillers Group.
Chairman’s Reserve was first blended in 1999, overseen by then-Chairman Laurie Barnard. A blend of column and pot distilled rums, the line features some of St Lucia’s most beloved spirits.

This 100% molasses distillate is a blend of 2 to 3-year-old rums distilled in a combination of Coffey and copper pot stills. Aging is done separately by batch and still type in ex-bourbon barrels, then the rum is blended and rested in oak vats for an additional 6 months before filtering is done to remove color. Brown sugar, banana, and hints of umami on the nose are followed by wet slate and pink peppercorn on the palate with a sweetness that dries on the finish with lingering tannin. 43% ABV
