Miss Pi­ton in a Be­hind the Scenes Tour of the Mak­ing of Pi­ton Beer

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Miss Pi­ton, Ber­nella Veli­nor, re­cently had a tour of Wind­ward and Lee­ward Brew­ery Lim­ited (WLBL). The ex­u­ber­ant 23-yearold Miss Pi­ton met the team who pro­duce the award-win­ning brew she will be rep­re­sent­ing to­day at the 2016 Car­ni­val Queen Show and also had a first-hand ex­pe­ri­ence on the pro­duc­tion process of Pi­ton Beer.

“It has been a very re­fresh­ing and en­light­en­ing ex­pe­ri­ence,” she said. “I am grate­ful to my spon­sor Pi­ton Beer for or­gan­is­ing this tour and sup­port­ing me on this jour­ney. The en­cour­age­ment that I have re­ceived from the staff at Wind­ward and Lee­ward Brew­ery Lim­ited has re­ally given me the push to go for the gold! Know­ing I have such a great sup­port sys­tem, I am con­fi­dent we will go home with the crown this year.”

Ac­com­pa­ny­ing Miss Pi­ton on the tour was Brand Man­ager Sylvester Henry who ex­plained the role Pi­ton Beer plays in the Car­ni­val ex­pe­ri­ence as a whole.

“We are a ma­jor spon­sor of Car­ni­val and we try to be in­volved in many as­pects of the fes­tiv­i­ties. We un­der­stand the im­por­tant role of the Car­ni­val Queen Show Pageant in the over­all Car­ni­val prod­uct. The Queen Show is a sta­ple on the Car­ni­val cal­en­dar and is al­ways one of the more an­tic­i­pated events. We are happy to sup­port the pageant which so many young women use as a plat­form to launch them­selves and build their char­ac­ter and self-es­teem. We are equally pleased with our con­tes­tant and her in­ter­est in our op­er­a­tions. We or­gan­ised this tour to share in­for­ma­tion about Pi­ton Beer, what we stand for and rep­re­sent. We are a truly 100 per­cent Saint Lu­cian prod­uct and Miss Pi­ton had a chance to see up close how it all comes to­gether.”

He added that the team at WLBL will all be cheer­ing for Ber­nella and wish her the best of luck in the com­pe­ti­tion.

The Pi­ton Beer Brand Man­ager en­cour­aged all Saint Lu­cians to come out and sup­port Miss Pi­ton and the other seven beau­ti­ful con­tes­tants com­pet­ing for the pres­ti­gious ti­tle this evening at the Na­tional Cul­tural Cen­tre.
