Chairman’s Spiced Rum begins with the original Chairman’s Reserve steeped with “Bois Bandé,” a local Caribbean bark culturally known for its aphrodisiac qualities. Added to the rum are local spices and fruits such as cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, vanilla, allspice, lemon and orange peels.

A blend of Coffey and pot still rums aged and finished with local fruits and spices. Aged separately by batch and by type of still in ex-Bourbon barrels, then blended and rested in oak vats for an additional six months. Local fruits and spices are added over the final six months of finishing.

An expressive aroma of bitter orange, nutmeg, cinnamon, and sweet raisin lead to a sweet and rich mouthfeel bursting with exotic spices, and balanced with crisp citrus character. An epicurean and complex spiced rum.

Country Of Origin: Saint Lucia

St Lucia Distillers emerged from a long tradition of on site, rustic rum production that was a common feature of the West Indies sugar plantations. The molasses (a by-product of the sugar industry) was fermented and distilled into Rum which was always in high demand, despite the fluctuations in the economy of the West Indian plantations. By the late 1950's, only two distilleries remained on Saint Lucia. One in Dennery on the East coast, established in 1931 which was the site of the Barnard family plantation and the other in the Roseau valley which was owned and operated by Geest, a Dutch banana company.

The St Lucia Distillers Group was formed in 1972 when due to the rise in European sugar beet, sugar production on Saint Lucia ended forcing the Barnard family to enter into a joint venture with the Geest owned Distillery moving their operations from the Dennery Distillery to the Roseau Bay Distillery in the Roseau Valley. This is the current location of St Lucia Distillers. In 1992, the Barnard family, who had been planters and Rum distillers for over a century, purchased the Geest shares. In 1997, the Barnard family sold some of their shares to Angostura Ltd before in 2005 selling their remaining shares to Clico Barbados Holdings with third generation rum maker Laurie Barnard staying on as Managing Director. In 2012 Laurie Barnard passed away and in 2013, Mrs Margaret Monplaisir was appointed his replacement.
