1931 from St Lucia Distillers. This turquoise coloured offering is the 3rd edition in the series.
Originally released to commemorate 80 years of rum production by St Lucia Distillers this rum or to be more accurate these rums – as they are all entirely different blends have become something of a flagship rum for St Lucia Distillers.
Berry’s Bros & Rudd (BBR for short) is London’s oldest and one of its most respected wine and spirits merchants. They have traded from the same shop in St James Street since 1698.
They hold two warrants to supply wines and spirits to the Prince of Wales and the Queen! So if I don’t give this bottle of rum a good review I might end up in the tower….
This is the 81st anniversary edition of the 1931. Following up from 2011’s original edition. St Lucia Distillers are perhaps most famous for their Chairman’s Reserve and Admiral Rodney rums.
Domestically their Bounty rum is very popular, though strangely not widely available outside the Caribbean. It is available in the US under the Denros brand.
Duncan Taylor are primarily an Independent Scotch Whisky bottler, whom like Wm Cadenhead also dip their toes in the rum market.
Formed in 1938 the company transformed itself from a broker of whisky casks to distilleries and Independent bottlers, to producing and marketing their own brand bottlings.
St Lucia Distillers are famous for producing Chairman’s Reserve, Bounty (mainly for the domestic market) and Admiral Rodney.
1931 is a rum brought onto the market in 2011 to commemorate 80 years of the Dennery Distillery, St Lucia. In 1972 the Dennery and the Roseau Distilleries merged and formed the company we have now, St Lucia Distillers.
Chairman’s Reserve White Label is the latest white rum up for review. Regular readers will be aware of my fondness for the regular Chairman’s Reserve and other offerings from the excellent St Lucia Distillers.
St Lucia Distillers produce a fine range of blended pot and column still rums and I would thoroughly recommend anyone who is serious about authentic rum seeks out their offerings. I’ve reviewed most of the rum that is available in the UK and decided to round off a recent round up of a few white rums with this offering.
Anyone who has bothered to read any of my rum related ramblings, will be more than aware of my love of Chairman’s Reserve. Despite being a relatively young and inexpensive rum (freely available in Sainsburys supermarket for £20) it captured my heart very early on in my rum journey.
The double distilled mix of pot and continuous still rum’s offer an authentic and unadulterated rum experience which at the £20 price point is difficult to beat. With the success of The Kraken and Sailor Jerry I’m always a little miffed that Sainsbury’s have never stocked the Spiced Chairman’s Reserve as they do the standard offering. I first tried this rum a couple of years ago. In many ways I’m pleased I left starting my blog until I had tried a good number of rum’s. I feel only now am I beginning to develop any kind of understanding of the various rum’s on offer.
