Chairman’s Reserve is Saint Lucia’s premiere rum and the global icon brand within St. Lucia Distillers. Our historic distillery is nestled in the scenically beautiful and agriculturally rich valley of Roseau on the Caribbean island of St. Lucia. St. Lucia Distillers sources batches of rich molasses from Guyana by boat to the island shores. This philosophy has been the backbone of Chairman’s Reserve and has made the brand an absolute “must-have” for anyone who appreciates fine rum. For more information please visit

Chairman’s Reserve Rum has adopted the Mai Tai as its signature cocktail. As part of their re-launch efforts, beginning in the summer of 2017, Chairman’s Reserve launched regional cocktail competitions in sophisticated spirit markets around the globe. These competitions are part of a world-wide educational campaign and multi-market challenge to the world’s top bartenders to discover the authentic roots of the Mai Tai, one of rum’s most popular cocktails.
