The International Spirits Challenge has again named Foursquare Rum Distillery as the Rum Producer of the Year. Congratulations to Richard and everyone at Foursquare. It isn’t the only well deserved honor earned by Foursquare.
Mark VI of Foursquare’s Exceptional Cask Series… 2005… is the first Rum in ISC history to be judged the Spirit of the year and named Supreme Champion, besting more than 1500 entries. Although I personally think Destino is the Super Supreme Champion of all-time, at least the judges awarded it a Gold Medal. A Gold medal was also awarded to Principia, in the “Rum Limited Bottling” category.
Congratulations are in order for all of the recognition, but more importantly, thank you Richard and everyone involved for bringing us these delights. The bar was set high, and Foursquare continues to exceed its own superlative standards.
Thank you and congratulations!!
