Cuvée presentation

A Foursquare blended from various casks and years: a 2004 bourbon cask, a 2005 Madeira cask and a 2007 new oak cask. A collaboration between Richard Seale, the director of Foursquare, and Luca Gargano, the director of the renowned Genoese independent bottler Velier. Velier owes much of its renown to its selections from Demerara Distillers Limited (Guyana) and Caroni. It no longer has access to the former and the latter’s stocks are gradually beginning to run out. The time has therefore come to explore new territories, including Barbados. As is traditional for the house, this is a blend of rum distilled in a Coffey still and rum distilled twice in a pot still. A limited edition of 5,400 bottles.

The distillery Foursquare

Looking for a rum produced by a family company that respects traditional methods? Then look no further. Foursquare is a family-owned distillery that has been masterfully managed by the Seale family since it was first founded in the 19th century. The distillery is located on the island of Barbados in the Caribbean Sea. The story goes that in 1883 Reginald Leon Seale decided to learn the art of rum blending. He then created his first company in 1926, lending his initials to the business name, R.L. Seale & Co. At the time, Barbados could not market its own rum, which was instead sold to bottlers and other independent brands. The distillery was handed from father to son, until Foursquare was built in 1996 on the site of the former sugar refinery and distillery of the same name. Rums are produced at the distillery from diluted molasses, and fermented with South African yeasts. Foursquare quickly established a strong reputation for its ex-bourbon cask maturations.
