John D Taylors Velvet Falernum is masterfully produced at the renowned Foursquare Rum Distillery on the gentle southern slopes of the St George Valley, St Philip, Barbados.
R.L. Seale is one of Barbados’ oldest trading houses, a family-owned business whose involvement in rum making extends from father-to-son since 1820. Current head distiller, Richard L. Seale, is one of the region’s most innovative distillers and blenders and has a passion for producing honest and perfect rum with amazing flavour.
The Foursquare Distillery occupies the site of a former sugar factory that dates back to 1636 and, as one of the most modern and efficient rum distilleries in the world, is designed to be both highly energy efficient and environmentally friendly. The distillery produces light rums in a three-column vacuum still and heavier rums in a modern pot still.
Foursquare Rum Distillery is renowned for producing premium rums from Barbados, including Doorly’s, R.L. Seale, Foursquare Exceptional Cask Selection series, and of course the John D Taylors Velvet Falernum.
