The first rum I tried which wasn’t from a supermarket was a bottle of Chairman’s Reserve. Chairman’s Reserve is from St Lucia Distillers, as is this rum. The rum is “ACR” (Authentic Caribbean Rum) which is a accreditation system drawn up to identify a]Authentic Caribbean Rum. There is also a petition ongoing to save Authentic Caribbean Rum. Historically, Admiral Rodney is much the same as Captain Morgan (no not the actual rum). Admiral Rodney was the military governor of St Lucia after the British seized the island back from France in 1762.
