Part of the distillery’s collaboration with Italian distributor, Velier that began in 2016, this double-matured rum spent three years in ex-bourbon oak and a further 11 years in ex-Cognac casks. a Blend of Pot and Column distilled rums, the name refers to the well known aromatic flower, traditionally used to flavour root beer. According to Foursquare proprietor, Richard Seale, no Sassafras was used in the making of the rum - it's just “a symbolic link”. It's reported to be another superb blending effort with just 6000 bottles on offer gloabally. Fully matured in the tropics.
