Kirk and Sweeney Rum is a truly stunning rum from the Caribbean (Dominican Republic). It is processed from traditionally harvested sugar cane and aged in American oak barrels for 18 years to fully develop its profile.
The name of this rum comes from the wooden schooner “Kirk and Sweeney”, which was known for smuggling rum from the Caribbean to the Northeast of the USA during the early years of prohibition. The bottle and the raised cork were inspired by the onion bottles of the 18th-century. On the bottle is an old sea chart printed with the main smuggling routes for rum.
