The Prime Minister of Saint Lucia, Philip J. Pierre presented the new CARICOM 50th Anniversary Rum Blend from the Saint Lucia Distillers Group to President Dr. Irfaan Ali who is serving as Chairman of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM).

The CARICOM Chairman received the rum blend during the ongoing 46th Regular Meeting of the Conference of CARICOM Heads of Government being convened in Guyana.

The blend is attractively packaged under the Saint Lucia Distillers Group Chairman’s Reserve Brand, and this new expression honours the achievements of the Caribbean Community over the past 50 years.

It is a specially selected blend of 12-year-old rums from the distillery’s unique collection of pot and column rum stills aged in various oak casks and is one of several being developed by members of the West Indies Rum & Spirits Producers Association (WIRSPA) to commemorate the Caribbean Community’s 50th Anniversary.

The products being showcased by regional rum producers will be distributed to CARICOM, with limited quantities being available for sale in local markets.

The Saint Lucia Distillers Group is the first WIRSPA member to make a 50th-anniversary presentation to CARICOM.
