Foursquare Premise Rum
The naturally rich, fruity character of Bajan rum has been both accented and tempered by the ageing process. This is a must-try for dedicated rum lovers, but will also appeal to whisky fans.
Rich barley sugar at first, then spicy notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. Warm Bakewell tart, a touch of cherry menthol and aromatic ginger.
The Seale family have been in the rum business since 1820, for four successive generations. In 1996, they built the Foursquare in Barbados, and since then have been involved in production as well as distribution. The business is still family owned and run, with Sir David Seale as CEO, and his son Richard as master distiller. Premise is a blend on pot still and column still rums, aged for three years in bourbon casks, and a further seven years in sherry casks.
