Doorly's rums are crafted in Barbados by R. L. Seale & Co- a 4th generation family-owned business passed from father-to-son since the 1920's. The Foursquare Distillery, where it is produced, was built in the 1990's on the site of a 17th century sugar factory and is one of the most modern and environmentally friendly distilleries in the world.
Current head distiller Richard Seale , has a passion for creating authentic rum with great and honest flavour. Unlike many rum producers, he never adds any sugar or flavour additives after distillation, instead adopting to mature his rum in high quality oak barrels for a longer period than most to naturally mellow the spirit.
