Rum Officer's Releases N° 1 Port Cask Finish 2006 - 45°.
In the beautiful valley of Roseau stands the St Lucia distillery, born in the '50s from the'union of two distilleries,
one in Dennery, linked to the plantation of the Barnard family and one in Roseau of the Geest family. It was in the seat of the latter that the long tradition of St. Lucia began, whose birth also sanctioned the union of the families of the two original distilleries.
The Geests remained partners until 1992 when the Barnards took over the shares and then Angostura Ltd. of Trinidad joined the company in 1997.
Since 2005 at the helm of the St Lucia Distillers Group of Companies there's Clico with Laurie Barnard, the third generation of rum makers.

The first edition in the series, Admiral Rodney Officer's Releases No. 1, is an artful blend in the Saint Lucian rum tradition. This limited edition is distilled and aged in the tropical climate of Saint Lucia and expertly composed by Master Blender Evanius Harris
