Kirk and Sweeney was a wooden schooner, best known for smuggling rum from the Caribbean to the Northeast during the early years of Prohibition. Just before it entered United States territorial waters, the schooner would drop anchor and sell the rum to smaller boats to smuggle the rum ashore.
Kirk and Sweeney Rum is crafted in the Dominican Republic from raw sugarcane. The bottle is silkscreened with an antique nautical map of the main rum smuggling route to serve as a reminder of the risk so many were willing to take during the 1920s for a taste of great rum.
Scott Northeimer, Spirits Manager for 3 Badge Beverage Co., will be here presenting this special rum demo.
