DESCRIPTION St Lucia Distillers’ philosophy is based on innovation and quality. Authenticity, tradition refined experimentation in distillation techniques, allow for some of the best Rum blends in the world. Long-aged meditation rum, handcrafted to replicate that found in the barrels that survived the disastrous fire that struck the Saint Lucia distillery in May 2007. The Cellar Master, during reconstruction, was forced to find more unusual places for barrel storage. These “Forgotten Casks” resulted in a rum that was too aged for the Original Chairman’s Reserve. It was thus decided to make this production a ‘limited edition acclaimed worldwide.
AGING Separated by batch and type of distillation in ex-Bourbon barrels; after blending, the rum rests in oak barrels for an additional 6 months. Average aging is 6 to 11 years.
