Chairman’s Reserve was created by Laurie Barnard, the last founding family member to hold the Chairman’s position at St. Lucia Distillers. He created a splendid rum, steeped in the 80 plus years of St. Lucian rum heritage and the legacy of the Barnard family. To create Chairman’s, he experimented with blending respective casks of double distilled pot still rum and column still rum. By returning the blended rum back into oak barrels for additional aging, Laurie Barnard created a soft, well-balanced, and flavorful spirit that has become the benchmark for St. Lucian rum.
