St Lucia Distillers, the sole distillery in Saint Lucia and manufacturer of award winning rums is excited to reveal “Celebrating our Caribbean Passions” a special Chairman’s Reserve collector’s item, that marries the brilliant art of Llewelyn Xavier with the finest St Lucian Rum.
Chairman’s Reserve rum, since its birth in 1999, has solidified itself as one of the best rums in the World! This unique, handcrafted rum blend was personally selected by the then Chairman Laurie Barnard and is a combination of distilled Pot and Column Still rums. With its dark brown amber colour, the pot still richness comes through on the nose with sweet honeyed fruit and spicy vanilla from the oak.
Llewelyn Xavier OBE, is a Saint Lucian born artist whose art is being held in the permanent Collections of the Smithsonian Institution, Washington D.C., the Museum of Modern Art, New York, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York and The Victoria and Albert Museum, London, just to name a few.
