About Foursquare Sagacity Single Blended Rum
The Foursquare Rum Distillery was opened in 1996 on a former sugar plantation on the Caribbean island of Barbados by R. L. Seale & Company Limited, which was established in 1926 by Reginald Leon Seale. The distilling operations are now run by his great grandson Richard Seale, who joined the family business in 1993 and has been working tirelessly on bringing innovation to the 300-year-old process of fermentation and distillation of sugar cane by-products.
The Caribbean is the birthplace of the modern rum, and Barbados produces some of the finest rums in the world. When building the Foursquare distillery in mid-1990s, Richard asked the best engineers to help develop his new ideas, and they designed a modern, computerized distillery. While insisting on producing traditionally distilled pure rum with passion and a no-nonsense approach, Richard does not shy away from upgrading tradition with modern methods. On his mission to earn rum the place it deserves, he has also pushed for a geographical indication (GI) for Barbados rum. He was described as a questioning, opinionated Barbadian, who is leading rum into the 21st century by the spirits expert Dave Broom. The Foursquare Rum Distillery found its niche in creating high-end rums, and Richard's quest to make world's best rums has earned the distillery several consecutive Rum Producer of the Year titles in prestigious international competitions such as the International Spirits Challenge.
Foursquare Sagacity is part of the distillery’s popular Exceptional Cask Selection series. It is a blend of two 12-year single blended molasses-based rums (pot and column distilled), one aged entirely in ex-Bourbon barrels, and the other in ex-Madeira barrels. It is bottled at 48% ABV (96 proof), without adding color, sugar or other additives, and without filtration. This expression was awarded a Double Gold in the 2020 International Spirits Challenge.
