Spirits of St. Lucy

Spirits of St. Lucy

One of Barbados’ leading rum producers this evening officially opened a fourth aging bond, bringing its total storage capacity to 49,000 barrels of the spirits.

It was the grand opening of the 310 year old Mount Gay Distilleries Limited’s new facility in St. Lucy, with an additional 14,000 barrel capacity, constructed at a cost of $3†million.

Prime Minister Freundel Stuart, who addressed the ceremony, was taken on tour of the facility by the French-based Remy Cointreau Group majority shareholders executives. Remy’s Chief Executive Officer, Jean-Marie Laborde flew in for the occasion and he was joined on the tour by Managing Director of the local operation Raphael Grisoni, Minister of Industry and Small Business, Denis Kellman, who is also MP for the constituency, and other dignataries.

In a light moment, Stuart told those present that nothing was better than Mount Gay Old and Coke (Coca Cola). But he suggested that he limited his consumption of this spirit to “a little for the stomach’s sake”, in accordance with Scripture.(EJ)
