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.
