On May 2 2007 St Lucia Distillers was struck by a major fire. Mercifully most of the distillery was spared but there were great problems with storage, forcing them to find space for ageing casks in the most unusual places.

Having done so, the cellar team had a memory lapse and forgot the casks that had been laid down for award-winning Chairman's reserve.

These casks were found recently and upon tasting were found to contain a wonderfully complex rum which has now been offered as a limited release: Chairman's Reserve - The Forgotten Casks, which has already won a gold medal and best in class at the International Wine and Spirit Competition 2011.

Review: Well, this was a bit of a Drinkshop discovery as I have not seen it elsewhere!
I do like a drop of Chairman's Reserve, and thought I would upgrade to Forgotten Casks, and am glad I did. This is quite a sweet rum, with a pleasant warmth and an almost smokey aftertaste. Unlike the previous reviewer however, I think this rum should be sipped neat to really appreciate it.

Review: This is a well rounded, flavoursome rum. It needs nothing other than ice. I have been hooked on this since St Lucia this year and am on my 3rd bottle. I was a single malt man and have drank many, but this rum surpasses them. I would recommend this to any person who enjoys a good clean drink.

Producer Information

In 1922, the Barnard family purchased the large sugar estate of Dennery. Ten years after that purchase, the young Denis Barnard founded a distillery at Dennery and in 1972 merged the Dennery Factory Co. Ltd. with Geest Industries Ltd. in Roseau Valley to form the St. Lucia Distillers Group of Companies which now operates from Roseau. Denis' son and the grandson of the original owners of Dennery is the current Managing Director of St. Lucia Distillers.

Over the years, the family-run factory has been considerably modernized and new technologies and improvements constantly incorporated. After Angostura Ltd. of Trinidad and Tobago (producers of the World famous Angostura Bitters) bought a 24.9% stake in the company in April 1998, a new bottling line was commissioned which enabled the Distillery to blend and bottle a wider range of specialist rums and liqueurs. The installation of a pot still in 1998 has also meant that especially high quality flavorful rums, still being aged, are now being produced. The company has since introduced two more pot stills adding to the variety of rums being produced.

In 2005 CLICO Holdings Barbados Ltd. purchased the Barnard family shares and intends to continue the traditions established by the Barnard family with Laurie Barnard remaining as Managing Director.

St. Lucia Distillers is very proud of its reputation as a producer of over twenty five of the highest quality rums and rum liqueurs in the Eastern Caribbean and of the awards and prizes our rums have won.
