Martin Doorly was the founder of the company back in the early 1920's. He created many new rums and some were named after the owner. There are five Doorly's brands sold in Barbados - most with the Macaw as the symbol on the label. The new Doorly's XO continues this strong heritage and is a blend of six to twelve year old Barbadian rums. The last maturation is conducted in Oloroso Sherry Oak Casks. In 1992/3 the House of Martin Doorly was acquired by RL Seale.
