A Dumbarton rum distillery received a very special visit from the High Commissioner of St Lucia 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 St 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 St 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 distils 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.”
