Foursquare Distillery is owned by the Seale family who have five generations of rum-making expertise dating back to 1820. The family itself can trace its roots on the island back to the 1650s. Being wholly family owned means we are free to pursue a perfectionist agenda compared to most Caribbean rum distilleries which are beholden to the major spirit companies. We invest more time and more money than other distilleries because we believe it makes a difference to the taste. RUM SIXTY SIX Family Reserve comes from one of the last independent family-owned distilleries in the Caribbean. It is distilled, aged and bottled at the Foursquare Rum Distillery, Barbados. Small batch distilled (usually 112 barrels) and tropically aged for a minimum of 12 years in small American white oak casks. Spirits in the Caribbean age more quickly than in Europe due to the warm climate. After 12 years tropical ageing RUM SIXTY SIX has a maturity and complexity comparable with European spirits twice this age.
Medium to dark amber. Rich, aromatic nose with raisins, prune and some treacle. Slight vanilla notes and lots of wood. Big and full in the mouth with lots of flavour and mellow maturity. Fairly sturdy oak influence. Vanilla plays an important part in a long lasting finish.
