ST. LUCIA DISTILLERS

Distillery
Founded in 1972
St Lucia Distillers is situated in the valley of Roseau on the island of St Lucia. The company portfolio features over 25 Rum products.

St Lucia Distillery began as most West Indian sugar plantations do, with in-house on-site production.

Two distilleries remained by the late 1950s, Dennery on the Barnard family plantation, and the other Geest-owned facility at Roseau (the current location of St Lucia Distillers Group of Companies).

The two distilleries combined to form St. Lucia Distillers Group, producing Denros Bounty Rum.

The Barnard family bought out the Geest shares in the early 90s and in 1997 the shares were sold to Trinidad’s Angostura Ltd. The company was then acquired by Martinique-based Groupe Bernard Hayot, in 2016.

The group owns two of Martinique’s top Rum distilleries: Rhum Clement and Rhum J.M.

The company’s lineup features several award-winning, super premium brands, traditional white and dark Rums, as well as Liqueurs and Rum cremes.

Their brands include Chairman’s Reserve, Admiral Rodney, 1931, Bounty Rum, Toz, and Elements 8 among several others.

On May 2, 2007 Saint Lucia Distillers was struck by a major fire nearly destroying the blending facility. Thankfully the majority of the facility was salvaged but the damage created unique storage problems, forcing the cellar master to resort to finding unusual places to store the Rum barrels. As a result a lot of them were misplaced. When these “forgotten casks” reappeared they were turned into an extra aged Chairman’s Reserve, which received much critical acclaim.
