A Scottish rum distillery received a very special visit from the High Commissioner of Saint Lucia to the UK over the weekend.

His Excellency Anthony Severin paid a trip to the Island Slice Distillery, which is run by Sylvester Herman.

Sylvester is originally from Saint Lucia and is a fourth-born generation rum distiller from the island.

Dumbarton MSP Jackie Baillie also attended the visit on Saturday.

Sylvester said: “It was a resounding success and fantastic to receive the seal of approval from the High Commissioner of Saint Lucia.

“He had not been to Scotland since he took office and I haven’t had a visit like this in the seven years I have been here.

“It was a great day.”

Ms. Baillie said: “It was a joy to visit Island Slice at the weekend to find out more about the rum that Sylvester distills at Dalreoch.

The sun was shining as he brought a little slice of the Caribbean to the Clyde.

“It was an incredible honour for Sylvester and a delight for me to meet with His Excellency, Mr. Anthony Severin, High Commissioner for St Lucia on the day.

“I wish Sylvester all the best for his venture which I am sure will be a huge success given his incredible enthusiasm and fantastic product.”

  1. Instead serverin try to get work going to get reparations for st Lucians he going and sample rum. SMH

  2. More importantly tell us when he lies friend and comrade who was a part of the whole range fiasco trying to purchase it to avoid paying taxes, will be in his deputy position and what the cost will be to the tax payer for aiding and abetting in this deed

  3. Most Lucians drink more scotch, champagne, hennessy etc rather than this local garbage. They had to of enhance the flavour before trying this kind in Scotland.

    • Thats because most people in the world tend to drink, what they think is exotic to them, for example hennessey is from france, and the drnch drink more scotch and rum, but they like their champagne

  4. Good that you went to Scotland. Now learn how to make good rum so that I don’t need to drink that local “toilet swill” called “Chairmans reserve & Bounty.

  5. I’m pretty sure the lady in the picture is deputy Labour leader/MSP Jackie Bailey, correct me if I’m wrong.
    None the less well done and keep going lucian boy #758strong

  6. wow thats great news Saint Lucia Distillers should hook up with you so some of our rum can be sold in scotland or what?
