CARICOM’s 50th Anniversary Rum Blend launched during the 46th Regular Meeting in Guyana


The Prime Minister of Saint Lucia, the Honourable Philip J. Pierre this week presented the new CARICOM 50th Anniversary Rum Blend from the Saint Lucia Distillers Group to His Excellency Mohamed Irfaan Ali, President of Guyana and 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 twelve (12) year-old rums from the distillery’s unique collection of pot and column rum stills, and aged in various oak casks, and is one of several being developed by members of 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.

    Seems like you know so much about Every country in the Caribbean. Why don’t you take time and tell us about your village and yourself. Dominica has a problem for you St. Lucía have a problem.

    What the mis-leaders of this talk-shop organisation do best is get together in grand style, cock their feet and imbibe many expensive and special bottles of wine and rum.

    In all the member states, crime is rampant, joblessness is sky high, wages are unlivable, healthcare is beyond the average family’s pockets, taxes are remaining the purchasing power of most citizens, utility bills insanely high, et cetera. Despite all these difficulties faced by the normal citizen, CARICOM has miserably failed to offer real solutions and a clear path for economic and social relief.

    With these present crop of ultra-selfish, amoral and anesthetized heads of government, the Caribbean region in a matter of a few more years would descend into the abyss. We are doomed to eternal damnation unless there is a change of leadership that offers equity, non-partisanship, trustworthiness and openness.
