The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

St. Lu­cia Dis­tillers, the sole dis­tillery in Saint Lu­cia and man­u­fac­turer of award win­ning rums, is ex­cited to re­veal “Cel­e­brat­ing our Caribbean Pas­sions”, a spe­cial Chair­man’s Re­serve col­lec­tor’s item that mar­ries the bril­liant art of Llewellyn Xavier with the finest Saint Lu­cian Rum.

Since its birth in 1999, Chair­man’s Re­serve rum has so­lid­i­fied it­self as one of the best rums in the World! This unique, hand­crafted rum blend was per­son­ally se­lected by the then Chair­man Lau­rie Barnard and is a com­bi­na­tion of aged Pot Still and Col­umn Still rums. With its am­ber colour, the pot still rich­ness comes through on the nose with sweet hon­eyed fruit and spicy vanilla from the oak.

Llewellyn Xavier OBE, is a Saint Lu­cian born artist whose art is be­ing held in the per­ma­nent Col­lec­tions of the Smith­so­nian In­sti­tu­tion, Wash­ing­ton D.C.; the Mu­seum of Mod­ern Art, New York; The Met­ro­pol­i­tan Mu­seum of Art, New York and The Vic­to­ria and Al­bert Mu­seum, Lon­don; just to name a few.

He is a multi-me­dia artist, en­vi­ron­men­tal­ist, pres­i­dent and founder of the Saint Lu­cia Sculp­ture Park Foun­da­tion and is seen as St. Lu­cia’s pre-em­i­nent vis­ual artist. Well known for his oil paint­ings, Llewellyn’s work ra­di­ates bril­liant pal­ettes which are in­spired by the Caribbean and its en­vi­ron­ment.

This spe­cial edi­tion of Chair­man’s Re­serve rum, pro­duced by St Lu­cia Dis­tillers, cel­e­brates Saint Lu­cia’s tra­di­tion and pas­sion for the arts. The bot­tle art­work was con­ceived by Llewellyn Xavier, whose colour­ful vi­brant works re­flect the bright­ness and vi­tal­ity of his na­tive home­land. As this unique piece is “Cel­e­brat­ing our Caribbean Pas­sions” this lim­ited edi­tion bot­tle is a wise blend of art and fine rum, mak­ing a great col­lec­tor’s item for ev­ery­one.
