This is also one of my favourites of the collection. The story has been heard before; I received a package with two Pitons, but one of them unfortunately broken. This makes this 1 beer even more special. Windward and Leeward Brewery Limited was established in 1974 and commenced production in November 1975 to manufacture Heineken Beer under franchise from its Dutch parent company, Heineken, as a major shareholder. The other major shareholders are Desnoes & Geddes Limited (Jamaica), and the St. Lucia National Development Corporation. The Piton lager was first brewed in 1992, and today the beer can be tasted in Barbados, Belize, Guyana, Anguilla, British Virgin Islands and the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago.
