Description

FULL DESCRIPTION
First blended in 1999, overseen by the then Chairman, Laurie Barnard, Chairman’s Reserve was created with the vision of creating a high-quality rum that represents the iconic style of Saint Lucian rum. Chairman’s Reserve starts with selected aged rums of both Coffey column stills and copper pot stills, married together after five years of maturation and then re-entered into oak for blending and finishing.

TASTING NOTES
Appearance: Golden honey.
Nose: Caramel banana and vanilla.
Taste: Golden raisins with notes of chocolate.
Finish: Clove and tobacco dissipate over a creamy sweetness.
Overall: A delightful balance of rich, fruity pot-still and creamy column.

Gift

Chairman’s Reserve Original is the best way to sample Saint Lucia’s unique style of rum, delicious and affordable.

Connoisseur

Rum is a spirit made exclusively by fermenting sugarcane or its by-products, these being molasses and sugarcane juice. There are no real rules when it comes to rum production making it a very large and varied category. The process of making this spirit is a combination of fermentation and distillation.

DISTILLERY
Saint Lucia Distillers.

ABOUT THE DISTILLERY
The Barnard family first settled in Saint Lucia in the 1820s and established their distillery in the 1930s by making rum from molasses produced by the islands’ massive sugar plantations. Due to the rise of European sugar beet, the local sugar industry was forced into extinction. This led 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 the history behind them, 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.
