It’s one of the Caribbean’s hotspots for chocolate – and now Saint Lucia’s famous industry is making its way into your glass.

St. Lucia’s Jade Mountain Resort and Antillia Brewing Company are debuting a dark beer that “hints at the glitter of the former Russian empire,” and incorporates the tropical taste of the Caribbean.

Labeled Nick Troubetzkoy’s Imperial Chocolate Stout, the new beer honors the Russian-Canadian architect and owner of Jade Mountain and Anse Chastanet resorts.

“Innovative thinking runs in Nick Troubetzkoy’s veins. One visit to Jade Mountain will reinforce this point,” said Andrew Hashey, Antillia’s founder and CEO. “We worked closely with the team at Jade Mountain and Anse Chastanet to develop an equally revolutionary beer.”

“The use of the resorts’ own chocolate ties this beer to the organic architecture of the place and to the history of the family that has created it,” he said.

The craft beer maker’s new brew is a traditional Russian stout with a twist– it is made using fresh-roasted cocoa nibs from the resort’s estates, home to more than 2,000 cocoa trees.

“It has proven to be a wonderful collaboration, resulting in yet another distinctive and unique offering for our savvy guests who appreciate the goodness of stout and the sweet, global history of chocolate,” said Karolin Troubetzkoy, Executive Director of the resorts.

With an alcoholic volume of eight percent, Nick Troubetzkoy’s Imperial Chocolate Stout is “deep, aromatic balanced and flavorful,” in the tradition of Russian imperial stouts.
