"The first official shipment arrives. Government House rum reaches American soil when it is unloaded from the S.S. Emilia at the Bull Line pier in Brooklyn. The official first shipment contained 9000 cases. More than 500,000 gallons of this pure cane-juice product is aging in charred white-oak casks in Christiansted, St. Croix. The first of it was produced in the Spring of 1934. Government House is manufactured under Department of the Interior Supervision by the Virgin Islands Company, a PWA project."
