Default New Chairman's Reserve Packaging

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: St Lucia Distillers, the sole distillery on the island of Saint Lucia and producer of fantastic award winning-rums is excited to reveal improved packaging of their rum brand “Chairman’s Reserve”.
From inception, Chairman’s Reserve solidified itself as one of the best rums in the world. A unique rum blend, Chairman’s Reserve is the essence of everything Saint Lucian.

A premium destination in the Caribbean where the finer things can best be enjoyed; Chairman’s Reserve with its new packaging will embody Saint Lucia in every respect.

To create this new packaging, St. Lucia Distillers acquired the services of an international design agency, highly regarded for their work for prestigious brands such as Grey Goose and Remy Martin. Their task was to give Chairman’s Reserve the premium look that it deserves, without losing its unique identity. The new labels, though clearly upgraded, will still be instantly recognizableby the current Chairman’s Reserve enthusiast community. “Chairman’s Reserve will no longer
be understated.

The bold new look will say to the world what Chairman’s Reserve drinkers already know – Chairman’s Reserve is the finest rum in the world” says Margaret Monplaisir, Saint Lucia Distillers Managing Director. “The improved look also makes Chairman’s Reserve a more fitting
ambassador of all that is Saint Lucian”.

As the brand continues to grow, the goal is for Chairman’s Reserve to be enjoyed all over the world. “We expect the brand’s rejuvenated direction to attract dynamic new distribution partners in priority global markets, which fit the strategy we have for Chairman’s Reserve,” says Matthieu
de Lassus, Chairman’s Reserve Export Director. “Chairman’s Reserve will compete more effectively at the international level in the premium rum category, and more broadly against all premium aged spirits”.

With this vision, St. Lucia Distillers will re-release the brand “1931” as a super-premium reserve rum in the Chairman’s Reserve portfolio. Now to be known as “Chairman’s Reserve 1931”, this rare aged rum will round off the new, polished portfolio of Chairman’s Reserve. “Chairman´s Reserve Forgotten Casks” will be available in July 2017 and “Chairman´s Reserve 1931” in September 2017.

End of Official Press Release.

There's also a major change; 1931 will now remain a constant blend and Admiral Rodney will become the platform for blends and different finishes.

I guess I need to do an edit on an article I wrote about spending three days in Saint Lucia where I said.... "This distillery is widely acclaimed among rum connoisseurs for producing quality rum across their entire price range.
Their iconic 1931 rum is produced in a limited vintage each year, and each annual batch showcases a unique aspect of Saint Lucia’s terroir, or the barrels and stills used in the spirit’s production and ageing.

The more affordable, but still premium Chairman’s Reserve Range includes a dark rum that’s beautifully complex on the nose with hints of tropical fruit and spice, as well as a spiced rum that pays tribute to the tradition of infusing rum with herbs that’s present across the Lesser Antilles." since some of that information is now inaccurate.
