Foursquare Rum Distillery is located on a former sugar plantation that dates back to approximately 1720. The distillery was re-opened by the Seale family in 1996, distilling operations and blending are currently directed by Richard Seale, 4th Generation Trader/Distiller of R.L. Seale & Co, who joined the family company in 1993.

Since Foursquare is a family-owned company, they are not part of a global group and create their very own type of Rum. Authenticity is very important to Seale, so transparency is a key factor for his products.

Typically they produce a Rum, that is a blend of Column Still and Pot Still Rum after two days of fermentation. For aging they usually use Ex-Bourbon Casks, typically for the Carribeans. In their Exceptional Cask Selection Series (ECS) they do have many other expressions with several Cask-Types (e.g. Sherry, Zinfandel, Port or Cognac).
Famous brands in various pricing areas produced here are: Foursquare Rum, Doorly’s, The Real McCoy, R.L. Seale, Rum Sixty Six but also many independent bottler select Foursquare Rums for their releases. Most known for their close cooperation with Foursquare is Velier with their famous head Luca Gargano. Seale and Gargano have a very strong bond of friendship and released some world-famous bottlings, especially interesting for collectors but also drinkers, such as the Destino 70th Anniversary (RX635) or the 2006 (RX168).

For beginners their bottlings of Doorly’s, such as the Doorly’s 12 (RX212) or the yearly released cask-strength Vintage Editions such as Foursquare 2009 (RX10082) can be used as a travel into unaldurated, tropically-aged Barbadian rum. Those are widely available and come at a relatively fair pricing.

Seale is an active member on various social media platforms, aswell. He is advocating for unaldurated rum and higher transparency in the whole industry, as well as higher producing standards on the island of Barbados.

Top review from Kevin Sorensen 🇩🇰:

"This is a great Barbadian. Once poured you know you're in Barbados. I love the coconut that is there from nose to finish. Seems like they hit the right barrel for this release. Well balanced overall and natural sweetness on the palate. Price to quality is very good."

Top review from Rhum Mirror 🇧🇪:

"Au nez, il y a de la coco à profusion. Aucun doute sur la provenance de cette quille. On est en plein dans le stéréotype de Foursquare ! Mais pas que … c’est boisé (14 ans de vieillissement, ça se sent), avec de belles épices poivrées et de muscade fraichement râpée. On a également quelque chose de plus lourd, de résineux (colle, vernis). C’est plutôt bien attractif et concentré comme nez. En bouche, c’est très gourmand, c’est épicé, mais pas trop. Beaucoup de douceur avec les fruits secs, le chocolat noir et le tabac. Les fruits sont également de la partie ! Les notes traditionnelles de la maison ne font pas défauts : vanille, noix de coco, réglisse, miel … La finale est plutôt soutenue sur le chocolat et l’orange sanguine ! En conclusion, c’est une belle réussite."

Top review from Kevin Sorensen 🇩🇰:

"This is a very rare rum as only 250 bottles were made. If you get the chance then you should have a go. It virtually explodes in your mouth, and you really taste the alcohol. Let it rest in the glass for at least 15 minutes to avoid a punch from the alcohol. "

Top review from DomM:

"Velier FS (+ a fee spected other contenders) blind cross tasting: Honestly, the results here were very close. The Belier bottlings display a very high quality thourgout the range. Triptych and Pleni came out on top for me closely followed by Destino. I was somewhat surprised, that Sassafras and 2006 came out rather at the bottom, while I enjoyed both very much on their own. Raconteur also quite low in the ranking with Principia clearly at the bottom."
