FOURSQUARE 2006

Rum, Barbados, 70cl, Ref: 51938

The first single blended rum from the Foursquare distillery to be bottled at higher alcohol strength than 60 % ABV. Aged under the Barbados tropical climate, Foursquare 2006 was left to sleep for 3 years in bourbon casks before being re-casked in ex-cognac barrels. This beautiful expression has already received two awards at the International Wine and Spirits competition (IWSC), and is likely to be classified as a collector rum.

Quantities limited to one bottle per customer and per transaction.

The brand

The brand

Traditional and family-run, R.L. Seale & Company creates the best spiced rum in the world, as well as white rum, gold rum, old rum and liqueurs. Established in 1926, it is one of the oldest independent bottlers in Barbados. Distillers for four generations and located on the former site of a sugar refinery whose origins date back to 1636, the Foursquare distillery is one of the most modern in the world. It produces a light rum in three-columned stills and a more powerful version, in a pot still.

Merchant

The Velier company was founded by the Chaix family in 1947. From 1953 to 1983, this small traditional company, located in the port of Gênes, specialised in the importation and distribution of wines, champagnes and spirits. In 1983, then aged 25, Luca Gargano acquired shares in Velier. Under his influence the company began specialising in the importation of exceptional spirits to be supplied to the most prestigious establishments in Italy. In the early 1990s, Luca Gargano heard rumours of a mythical, quasi-legendary stock of St James Rum that had supposedly been distilled at the end of the 19th century. Eventually he discovered proof that this stock, distilled in 1885 and bottled in 1952, did indeed exist. And in 1991, following lengthy discussions, Luca finally managed to acquire the entirety of this stock, which he then released on the Italian market. These selections of rums have since multiplied and led to the birth of exceptional ranges.
