With a new beverage for Barbados, there’s a new Micro-Brewery as “10 Saints” makes it way across Bajan bars

With a plethora of foreign beers invading Barbados, the good news is there is a fully Bajan brew to take on even the Caribbean based yet locally produced editions. The name of 10 Saints was carefully selected for copyright purposes and also translation into other languages yet perfectly patriotic…

CEO Glyn Partridge (Dude in blue shirt) chats with members of the Media - After several years of development they're proud to deliver Oak Aged 10 Saints® beer named after the 10 Saint Parishes of Barbados.

Glyn Partridge, the micro-brewery’s CEO, spoke with us recently and revealed the origins of the name’s creation {CLICK ON FOLLOWING LINK FOR FULL AUDIO};-

During the 2009 Speightstown ‘Jazz on The Beach‘ Festival, Glyn was liming on the beach with the musicians, had the great idea of combining the rum heritage of Barbados with refreshing lager beer to produce a truly unique taste.

When the beer launched at Limegrove, the friendly & efficient staff of Cafe Zoola catered the bash in the courtyard!

Having tried the beer, one would think by being matured in a rum cask the flavour is sharp, however, it is actually smooth and so we asked how was this melding achieved {CLICK ON FOLLOWING LINK FOR FULL AUDIO};-

The premium hand crafted beer is uniquely aged for 90 days in Mount Gay ‘Special Reserve‘ rum casks, from the world’s oldest distillery. This complex brewing process produces a smooth full flavoured yet refreshing lager beer with oak and rum notes.

Go to Facebook, there's a chance to win a case of 24 Hand Crafted Oak Aged 10 Saints and 'Share the Flavor' with friends.

The micro-brewery is also extremely active in both the web and Social Media {CLICK ON FOLLOWING LINK FOR FULL AUDIO};-

This week’s ‘Bar Of The Week‘ is La Bouche Wine Bar and Restaurant in Speightstown. Get 2 for 1 on bottles of Hand Crafted 10 Saints. They also have regular contests on Facebook.

Glyn is at extreme left while the other gent is 10 Saint's Marketing Manager, Shane Thomas - lucky fellows to have such lovely ladies near!

10 Saints beer can be found almost everywhere, I have even seen 6-packs at The People’s Market not far from the Eagle Hall Traffic Lights heading towards Zephirin’s Bakery.
