Bardstown Bourbon Company Foursquare Rum collab bottle front

Bardstown Bourbon Company released its latest in the Collaborative Series this month, a blend of Straight Rye and Bourbon finished in Foursquare Barbados Rum barrels. Bardstown Bourbon Co. Foursquare Collaborative Series became available starting on April 21.

This custom blend of 7-year-old rye and 17-year-old bourbon was aged for 23 months in Foursquare Rum barrels on the top floor of rickhouse G. This creates a lower liquid volume due to increased evaporation, but ultimately yields a concentrated, magnificent expression that bursts with Barbados flavor. 

Foursquare Rum Distillery is located on a former sugar farm that dates back to approximately 1720, on the tiny Caribbean island of Barbados. Foursquare enjoys its place as the perennial pinnacle of the category.

The distillery was re-opened by the Seale family in 1996, distilling operations and blending are currently directed by Richard Seale, 4th Generation Trader/Distiller of R.L. Seale & Co. Exceptional Cask Selections represent the unique, and rare offerings of Foursquare Rum Distillery that Richard has hand selected – his personal projects only released when he feels they are of exceptional quality. These are one-of-a-kind expressions, available only for a limited time, and showcasing truly unique approaches to both Rum blending and maturation.

The Foursquare Rum Collaborative Series release is presented at 107 proof (53.5% ABV) and offered at an SRP of $159.99. Roughly 3,000 9L cases of the finished bourbon will be available through the Bardstown Bourbon Co. gift shop, at retailers in 24 states and online at
