product Details

Foursquare 10 Year Old That Boutique-y Rum Company Batch #5 / Trailer Happiness with Miniature 

The Foursquare rum distillery is owned by R.L. Seale & Co, a family company with a traceable history of rum making in Barbados dating back to 1820. The modern company dates to the 1920s, when Reginald Leon Seale set up a distribution business in the island’s capital, Bridgetown. The company’s success brought expansion, and through the latter half of the 20th century it acquired brands such as ESA Fields and Doorly’s for its portfolio. In 1995 they opened the Foursquare distillery, converting an abandoned sugar factory in the Saint Philip parish. Operating as double retort pot still and a three-column continuous still, its first spirit was produced in 1996. Foursquare produces Single Blended rum, combining its pot and column distillate both before and after being barrelled, and under the direction of Sir David Seale and his son, Richard, has become one of the most revered producers in the world.

Bottled by That Boutique-y Rum Company, sister brand to the Whisky and Gin bottlers of the same nomenclature, famed for their irreverent graphic novel style labels.

The bottle was originally released in aid of the Trailer Happiness cocktail bar in London who suffered major damage due to flooding in July 2021. 

Batch #5 has been aged in a ex-Sauternes cask and resulted in 177 50cl bottles.
