Richard Seale is certainly among the most innovative and influential producers of rum in the world. For years, Richard has been fighting a battle against adding sugar to rum and the veracity of aging on the label. This continuous effort to improve the sector, combined with his personal talent for innovation, has meant that today Foursquare is one of the most popular rums among enthusiasts and experts worldwide. Richard was also the first manufacturer to experiment with different types of barrels for refining his products. Foursquare Distillery produces innovative and complex rums but without sacrificing the drinkability of the product. Furthermore, the use of different types of barrels, such as ex-sherry, means that the Foursquare rums are always soft and round.
The distillery produces rum exclusively from molasses and uses two types of stills: pot still and single column. The stills operate under vacuum, which allows the distillation to be obtained at a lower temperature (the lower pressure requires less energy).
Obviously they are all bottled without adding sugar and if an age is indicated it refers to the younger rum in the blend.
